Open Solaris

I am writing this in the OpenSolaris live CD from 2008/5 which seems to work without a problem on this Dell Inspiron 6000. I got the WiFi working without fuss. It all looks so much like Ubuntu that I hardly notice that I am on Solaris, brilliant. I think I might play with it a bit more, been fun so far, there are differences that I have noticed in the ifconfig command, it doesn't by default show you all your working interfaces, instead gives you help, not gotten the wired internet up yet, but probably all just a matter of time. It even has an install icon on the desktop as does Ubuntu. Very cool, thanks Matt.
