Has anyone taken a look at OpenSolaris? I had a look using the Live CD on two different pc's. I could not get Networking started on either machine and it could not recognize the onboard intel sound on my new machine. The network cards on both machines was recognized so most likely I needed to configure something to get online. There is not very much documentation available yet unfortunately
What did work worked well. I thought the artwork was good, everything looked nice! The default set of applications was good, except OpenOffice was not installed by default. I am guessing that there was not room for OpenOffice on the Live CD. I noticed Gimp was version 2.4.1, a little out of date but not bad considering when the os was built. Firefox was the current stable version, too bad I couldn't use it.
OpenSolaris looks to have some real potential and is very nice for their first stable release. Hardware support needs more work if they want to be main stream but I was still impressed by what I saw. I was surprised at how well the Live CD worked for being their first release. I am going to keep my eye on OpenSolaris, future releases are sure to be even better.
