    Question what do you think about this OS ?

    Built on top of the Open Solaris kernel and based on Ubuntu, Nexenta is a operating system that boasts some features like ZFS, DTrace and some others that I dont understand . Take a look at the following page.

    http://www.nexenta.org/projects/site/wiki/WhyNexenta

    Please tell me what you think about this OS.

    Thanks.

    It looks like a port of OpenSolaris to Linux. The last build is based on the Hardy Heron repositories... that's old!

    If you want to get OpenSolaris, get OpenSolaris!

    At least it uses Windows XP as a base for its design: http://openindiana.org/screenshots/b147-zpool-version/

    Hell of a lot better than using the Vista design :V

    Just kidding.

    I'm glad that you guys replied.
    well, I was thinking about a OS that would be a little different than Linux. what could do? Unix? BSD?
    and by the way, is there major difference between Linux and Unix other than the later one not being entirely open source?

    I'm thinking hardware/media support is going to be subpar compared to linux. Seems like it might be OK to screw around with, but other than that meh.
