I had Solaris express in my laptop with CDE-a proprietary desktop environment which sounded little bit difficult to use. Once I subscribed for Solaris10 DVD in Sun site. I got it this month through air mail. After finishing my semester exams I tried installing it. Now I have got a Solaris with JDS(Java Desktop System) environment uses free software.It is based on GNOME2.6.It gives a look and feel of a windows environment which can attract ppl.
Its really cool!!!.. Have got Sunstudio dvd also.Yet try those stuffs.Sun stuffs–Keep rocking!!!!..U can subscribe for Solaris DVDs, Sun Studio,Live CDs here
