It's great, sure... but not for everyone, seeing as how it's an alternative OS and not as universally supported as Windows is. Having said that, I'm quite content with the Sun Sparc Ultra 10 next to my Windows PC, and will be upgrading it from Solaris 9 now! Thanks!
(Incidentally, the last version or two were also free for personal use!)

Yeah, this is a good thing. Sun is actually giving their OS out for free, and trying to get people to buy support. It is just the opposite of what Microsoft does.

:cheers: ...or try any flavor of Linux. Solaris is another Unix based environment OS. They are giving away Solaris 10 on SPARC and X86 (or PC) platform. Just don't expect all your PC parts to work. Linux/Unix is definitively faster but will lack in application and hardware support. Fortunately, there's folks out there working hard to make it work for free under the open source environment (as opposed to MS Windows which is closed source where no code are shared). If you want to learn the inner workings of PCs learn Linux or be forever ignorant in a Windows world.
