Open Solaris

I just installed Solaris Nevada build 66 Developer Express on a Hp Laptop.
What can I say - the installation is just as expected.Brilliant.

Some of the best points.
1. Intel PRO 3945 wireless Card support.(I wanted it desperately).
2. SATA harddisk detection.
3. Most drivers work correctly.
4. And Solaris - thats the best part.

Additional feel good points.
1. Battery indicator.
2. Better Sound quality feel than Vista(My personal opinion).

Additional tasks required.
1. Install OSS drivers for sound card detection.
2. No games are installed- I mean real good 3d games.

Go ahead try it yourself.

Would like to know if anyone had experiences otherwise.
