Everyone’s posting their GNU/Solaris screenshots, so I will too. Here it is, courtesy of a LiveCD ISO from Nexenta. I don’t know if there’s a way to get screenshot of the Gnome startup splash screen, so I just whipped out my pocket camera and took a few snaps. This, I firmly believe, is the future of Solaris (er, except for I [blush] kinda lean to KDE myself; but you get the idea).

Gnome splash screen on GNU/Solaris

I wonder if I have the courage to wipe Solaris Classic and run with this? Hmmmmm. At the moment, the distro doesn’t seem to have a driver for the NIC on my computer, which comes from this obscure computer company named Sun Microsystems... snicker.
