+1.  There are alot of very useful desktop operating systems already,
so i see no point in OI trying to compete with them.  In business
speak OI has a sustainable competitive advantage with ZFS, zones,
dtrace, etc etc and those alone are why most people will be attracted
to OI.  Our OI servers sit in various computer rooms and we talk to
them exclusively over ssh, if it didn't feature a GUI we wouldn't
notice or care.  I wonder how many other OI users feel similarly?

Kind regards, Jules
