"OpenSolaris is Sun's open source version of the Solaris flavour
of Unix, and is primarily aimed at workstations. As a relative
newcomer to the open source world, however, the platform has lacked
a broad selection of applications, while hardware support has been
narrower than for competing Linux distributions.
"The new release, version 2008.11, was intended to address such
issues, while emphasising Solaris-only features such as the ZFS
file system. New hardware features include support for
suspend/resume, 3D graphics acceleration, support for SD cards and
better audio-hardware support, Sun said. Suspend/resume currently
works on a limited range of hardware platforms from Toshiba, Lenovo
and Dell, as well as Sun's own Ultra workstations."
