Looks like I'll be running Solaris again as my primary desktop (Yeeee-hawwwww!). More as to why on a future post.
It's been a while since I've done a complete re-install. IIRC, I have live-upgraded from Build 27 to Build 41. I pretty much hosed my install (covered a bit here). Sssooo, I backed up my data and installed Nevada Build 60 from scratch. It seems as if every time I do this, I forget where to download my favorite apps. Through Google, I found that Stacy has a good newbie-to-Solaris-x86 page that gave me some quick-links.
Lots has happened since Build 41. Firefox instead of Mozilla. Thunderbird. StarOffice 8. Flash Player 7 (Flash Player 9 is on its way). Gaim. To be more accurate, I installed Solaris Express, Developer Edition as a part of build 60, That includes NetBeans 5.5, Sun Studio 11, SAMP, Glassfish, and a boatload of other tools including MySQL.
I'll let you know how things go with build 60. Trying to get up enough courage to install early builds of NWAM. To be honest, I do miss one Windows and Apple feature. Suspend and resume. Yeah, yeah, we know
