I've got an older Sun Blade 1000 w/5GB RAM x 2CPU and I am going to update it a bit. It is an UltraSparc 64-bit, not x86.
I'm going to resurrect it and was thinking about OpenSolaris.
It has one of the early releases of Solaris 10 (2007 ish is when I installed it). I'm a bit out of the Sun loop lately so I did not follow the OpenSolaris initiative to even know the difference. Is Solaris 10 no longer a proprietary OS; dir it morph into OpenSolaris or is OpenSolaris a branch altogether.
Anyone running OpenSolaris that can contrast it? Worth the trouble? I won't be using the graphical desktop much but my current image is running Java Desktop (which I'm not so thrilled with honestly).
