Solaris 10 - not yet for me
By tdw on Feb 01, 2005
So I went to the download site, clicked on the DVD option, and there's the first problem - 2.3Gb for the 5 chunks that make up the S10 DVD. That's 8hrs at maxed-out DSL speed!!!
I thought I'd give it a go anyway - where's the harm in trying, even if it does take a couple of days to complete. However, my aspirations were very quickly curtailed when I realised that I was only getting under 20KB/s download speed instead of around 120KB/s. That's 8hrs per segment
Perhaps obviously, demand is high for this ground-breaking OS, so maybe I'll give it a few days to calm down, and let the customers get at it first.
