Hi Gabriele,

I like the idea of a baseline OS, without and extra-stuff as long as the 
basic features are available and since they are, I will surely give it a 
spin. Do you happen to know, if it will run on OracleVM? I've had no 
success with OI on that one and have been waiting for an illumos-driven 
distro would be available that will run on OVM. Either Solaris 11/11/11 
and OI had some issues with - I believe it was some apic stuff.
