Sašo: Thank you.
Hosting help will be very good in every case.
I don't know if you are subscribed to the Illumos devel list.
Garrett proposed, that OpenIndiana should no longer be Illumos'
reference distro.
That's what I meant. I finally found some appetite on Indiana, and now
it gets dropped?
I just think we folks will prevent that from happening  :)

I know, But on everything starting at 1GHz it is not that bad.
The reason was: Of course I'm aware of the smaller compression ratios.
But then DualLayer would be a requirement.
If you like and if time allows, I can offer two versions of that ISO.
One for DualLayer Media (with gzip-5) and the other for usual 4.7 GB
(4.4GB) media.
