A plea and advice.
I suspect I am in the minority who has found solaris then OSOL and now
OI and now uses it as a desktop system and small server - CIFS for kids
home work. But coming from linux use over last 12 years have found it
rather good -feels stable, limited packages but what you generally need
and some ZFS features -time slider/snapshots, easy back ups and easy cifs.
My plea is please not to ignore the desktop/home user, yes we are in the
minority (correct me if I am in the wrong) but if we want to use a
"solaris" based unix there currently seems no where else to go.
I do like the idea of a stable branch and the idea of security update so
at least the core system is up to date but please ensure we can still
access a reasonably stable desktop.
The advice please is if the overall plan is to move completely to a
server based distro and use as a desktop OS is limited should I just
stop wasting my time and step off now and return to linux.
