  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: HP, Ubuntu
Joe Panettieri (The VAR Guy) submits: Initially, I was skeptical about Dell's (DELL) decision to sell selected consumer PCs with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed.

The Solaris Installation Experience

There's a problem with Solaris and Sun knows it. The installation experience of Solaris (along with other areas) could be greatly improved.

However, in this time while Linux has become just as easy to install as Microsoft Windows (if not easier), Solaris has not really evolved to make the experience easier and attractive to potential customers.
