Solaris 10 with JDS on my Grub.

Posted: April 27, 2007 in Sun Stuff, Techstuff

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

    I think you installed SOlaris10 and not the developer version ?
    i remember seeing this look and feel on a old desktop ( solaris) the current one comes with flash enabled ,adobe enabled. You sure its solaris10 ?

    Looks like an old desktop that 🙂 . I had installed solaris10 on my laptop too but found it too slow for my ram so back to the old trusted ubuntu . how much ram do u think is really good for running a solaris build like any other normal linux distro ?

    I have 512MB RAM and its running well.But i think 256MB RAM will be enough for solaris10 with JDS.

    This is a very old JDS desktop.

    The CDs that you get on get.opensolaris.org should have been that of Solaris Express – based on the currently developed bleeding edge version of opensolaris.

    Even if you got a Solaris 10 DVD, this looks incredibly old :-). The new desktop is very polished and good looking !
