"Live CD experience
I decided to pop the CD into my T42 machine and boot, to see
whether Open Solaris can handle the four-year old hardware. 2008.05
had issues with some of the drivers when tested in a virtual
machine, most notably the sound driver. While not truly indicative
of a real life situation, it did indicate of a possible limited
hardware compatibility. The only way to check whether Solaris can
match comparable, modern Linux distros with extensive hardware
support was to test-drive it on a real machine.
"Changes are a-comin'
"Bob Dylan has a fabulous song The Times Are a-Changin' - and so
seems that Solaris is a-changin', too. The GRUB menu has changed
and sports paler, more reasonable shades of blue."
