The last days I didn’t have the chance to do the thorough research I had in mind about the various aspects of using OpenSolaris as a desktop, but, today, I spent a significant amount of time digging into various blog posts and the official documentation in order to get a preliminary idea whether this operating system can cover the needs of a desktop, which is not supposed to be used for “hacking” the operating system itself, but for accomplishing other tasks without being constantly distracted by the operating system’s features and bugs.
During this mini-research, fortunately, I avoided wasting time with content, whose authors, despite their bombastic statements about their taste on operating system related content, they blatantly end up publishing the type of content they particularly dislike. This makes the reader think: Why has such an article been written in the first place? Is it supposed to be helpful? I guess noone knows; not even the authors of such content. Of course, this is not an OpenSolaris-related issue, but rather a general issue with some people. So, if you don’t mind, my advice: stay away from such content.
