Then I am also one of the minority here..
I do use solaris/opensolaris/openindiana as desktop and plan to
continue doing so until all is lost.
This goes back to my school day sitting in front of ultra1 in the lab.
Old habit dies hard.
Please continue openindiana's desktop viability as long as possible.
