Welcome to Indiana!

Default Solaris GNOME ThemeIn 2005 Sun formally announced the open sourcing of Solaris. In May of this year, the community announced a new OpenSolaris project code named -- Project Indiana -- to build a binary distribution of OpenSolaris.

Today, the OpenSolaris community has announced that collectively, we've reached the first major milestone with Project Indiana by releasing a preview of the binary distribution of OpenSolaris. These bits will carry the name OpenSolaris(TM) Developer Preview.

By making a binary distribution of OpenSolaris, the community is giving  developers what they want and expect from OpenSolaris.

Why is this important? This is about re-engineering the way OpenSolaris technology is brought to the Free and Open Source community. It is about making it more accessible to students, developers and startups. The first official release of the distribution, planned for the first half of CY08, will be aggressively targeting this mass adoption. The Developer Preview release is intended for anyone who wishes to help develop and test the distribution.

The OpenSolaris Developer Preview distribution consists of a “Slim Install” Live CD, (only available for x86 platforms at the moment, SPARC to come soon). The Live CD includes a basic core operating system, GNOME desktop environment and a new graphical installer, with the option to install an the operating system from the Live CD. After the installation, additional packages can be downloaded by using the new Image Packaging System (IPS).

So check it out!
