I should have chosen a different name, I always seem to end up last on the
lists :-(

More seriously, I wouldn't necessarily call out Tribblix as experimental,
it's not that
different really to the others (it's just that my x86 port, like others, is
rather more mature
than the SPARC port).

But I would remove Oracle Solaris from the list. It should still be
mentioned, but not in a
way that implies it's an illumos distribution. Something like a separate

"For production use on modern SPARC hardware, there is also Oracle Solaris."
