|Jason also noted that he found
OpenSolaris to be very accessible for new users, "such as those
accustomed to using Linux." He also highlighted improvements in
performance and functionality of OpenSolaris' software packaging
system, which "now consumes less memory and boasts a faster
start-up time" for the graphical package manager.
Jason was a bit critical about VirtualBox support of OpenSolaris as a
host OS. However, he pointed out that should VirtualBox take fuller
advantage of OpenSolaris-specific features, "the combination of
VirtualBox and Crossbow could make OpenSolaris the go-to host
environment for Sun's desktop virtualization product."
