I want. But unfortunately I do not have time nor skills. Answering only 
to reflect (common?) sad situation.

Development for Windows skills. Doubt it can help.

 > 3. What kind of software do you want to have running on OI?

Apache - already running.
vsftpd - running on my server, though installed from 3rd party repository.
Lazarus - dreaming to try, but have no time/skills to install it on one 
of my OpenIndiana machines.

None currently, besides those which are already running. Hardware? 
Network cards.
But when I will change my server hardware... I afraid I will need more

Have collected some other's HOWTO for personal use.

Yes. E.g. how to setup a static IP address. Cannot remember the source. 
Storing on my PC.

where is it?

I wish I could...

 > 8. Do you use OI in a commercial environment?

Production environment (web server). Not commercial though.
