Open Solaris 2009.06 - Slowly getting there

http://www.dedoimedo.com

For some strange reason, I keep going back to Open Solaris. Maybe it's the beautiful Gnome desktop, well arranged and streamlined. Maybe it's the belief that Sun, one of the great technology leaders in the past 30 years, can deliver a usable operating system intended for the home market. And maybe it's my desire to crack open the frightening secrets of UNIX, for Linux, Open Solaris is not.

http://www.tuxradar.com

So you've been playing around with alternative OSes for a while and you reckon you've got this Linux thing mastered.
