Your questions are more like " things you wanted to know about OpenIndiana, but were afraid to ask" 

Good questions and good answers. 

I still don't know what IPS really is....

Getting Documentation from the oracle website is even for EU users like visiting a real oracle. You always feel lucky that you find an answer that partialy could fit you question....

Kind regards,
