OpenSolaris 2008.05 (part - I)

Today I have started playing with OpenSolaris 2008.05 live cd. It needs no username / password for login. If you logout from the system to change some settings, use "jack" for both username and password. "root" login is not enabled , if you want to become a super user in command line, use "opensolaris" as root password. Live cd image looks fine... really decent and pretty impressive.

Check out a "Device driver Utility" icon on the desktop. If you think any of your hardware device is not working , check out from here that whether driver support for that device is available or not !! (Read more...)

My pendrive (USB mass storage device) was also automatically detected in the system , check out the "RITWIK" icon on the desktop.

Be sure to check out the limitations of OpenSolaris 2008.05 before installing it .
