But is OpenIndiana ready for the desktop? If you have a box with Nvidia 
graphics, you might get away with a bit. What's the point in catering to 
end users when it's not ready? Then if you put up a forum for said end 
users and there is little to no experts on hand, you will just leave a 
very bitter taste for any end user brave enough to give OpenIndiana a 
try. Guess what that is going to do with OpenIndiana advocacy?
