Thanks everyone for putting in this effort.
I need to locate someone who can produce media. I'm thinking I need to
produce a few hundred copies at least -- maybe even a thousand.
Also, do we have any artwork to put on the media and/or the sleeves?
(Ideally with the new illumos logo?)
I've not booted the new media *yet* but will do so today. Is the new
illumos logo ("powered by") used on the OI desktop as well?
