OpenSolaris 2008.05 Released!
By arhus on May 05, 2008
The first binary release of OpenSolaris, the open-source operating system, has been released today as OpenSolaris® 2008.05. It comes in a LiveCD version, which you can download, burn as a CD and boot into without touching your current OS by installation. You can play around and install the OpenSolaris to your computer easily then. As the CD contains only the most important software packages, such as OpenOffice, Java, Firefox or Thunderbird, you can run IPS, the new Image Packaging System, which connects to OpenSolaris Package Repository to quickly download and install up-to-date software of your choice. You even don't need to install OpenSolaris to your real computer, you can run a virtual computer with VirtualBox for free and see how OpenSolaris works on your Windows Vista desktop for example.
