For the blogger, the first step of installing OpenSolaris went very well and the boot in the full install was "impressive." Though he faced a couple of driver and sound related issues, he concluded that his final impression of the OS was great. He said, "Kudos to the people who are working on that end of OpenSolaris. Nice and easy to use, and from my experience, takes care of all the dependencies. It is on par with modern Linux distributions, if nothing else."

Nathan Fiedler had been using Drobo via a DroboShare as a Time Machine backup for his MacBook Pro. However, Nathan ended up replacing Drobo and DroboShare with a server running OpenSolaris.

It’s absolutely fascinating."
