An Evening of Heavy Drinking

I love great quotes. Here's one from Ars at Ubuntu Live: Sun's booth in the exhibit hall: "I'm sure the folks from Sun were taking notes at Ubuntu Live and gaining some insight into the Ubuntu community-building process. Sun had a pretty strong presence at the conference. They even hosted a party with free beer, which is a pretty good strategy for Sun, because an evening of heavy drinking is probably the only thing that could make a current Ubuntu user think that installing OpenSolaris on a personal computer is a good idea at this point. We can only hope that Project Indiana will close the gap and make OpenSolaris a stronger choice for the desktop." -- Ryan Paul

So, it takes getting really drunk before you'd think if putting Solaris Express (Sun's distro of OpenSolaris) or any of the other four OpenSolaris-based distros on a laptop? Oh, it's not that bad, my goodness. :) If I can install Solaris Express than that means we've made gigantic headway because I know next to nothing about Unix technology. And things are improving (here, here, here) all the time. I have Ubuntu on one of my laptops, and it's quite nice, no question about it. But being open for just 25 months, I'd say we're doing quite nicely, too. Have people forgotten that?

Great quote, though ....
Comments:

You really ought to stop claiming 4 distros, SchilliX has not been updated in 18 months. It is an ex-distro.

Actually, if you're up to answering the guy, you may post that picture, if you want: http://www.flickr.com/photos/trochej/707652697/ and tell him, that there was Edgy, Feisty and Gutsy on this computer. But I always, in the end, use Solaris. So, just shoo him away.
