Another comment about OpenSolaris 2008.11

A really positive article about Opensolaris 2008.11. Steven Lawson writes in OpenSolaris 2008.11: Its Time Is Coming:

I was attracted to OpenSolaris 2008.11 in the first place by a couple of other internet articles, one of which posed a question, the other a bold statement.
The question was: "Will OpenSolaris 2008.11 attract Linux users?"
And the statement was: "OpenSolaris tackles Ubuntu dominance".
Let me deal with the question first by answering simply, 'Yes, if they have any sense'. And as for the statement, my reply is: 'No, it doesn't, not yet - but one day soon it should'.


OpenSolaris 2008.11 is well worth investing some time and disk space on. I think we will be hearing a lot more about this operating system in the future.

Of course he sees room for improvement, but at the end the improvments are just “We work on that” issues: More packages (in this article multimedia applications) and more wireless drivers.
