Welcome OpenIndiana- Project launched officially and ISOs are available for download
As expected, Yesterday afternoon OpenIndiana project was publicly announced.
This project was created to address the longstanding issue that the OpenSolaris distribution has constructed entirely by Sun/Oracle, not by the community. Depending on a single commercial entity has led to several issues, notably that bug fixes and security updates are only available via a paid for support subscription, that community participation has been limited in steering the direction of the operating system, and that commercial decisions have led to stricter licensing terms.
The first development release, oi_147, is now available for download! It is available in 3 download formats – a Live DVD with a graphical installer which installs a full desktop environment, a Text installer CD which installs a minimal server install, and the Automated Installer ISO which allows performing a custom install via XML files.
It is also possible to upgrade your OpenSolaris install to OpenIndiana via the IPS PKG system.
ISO`s can be downloaded from this Link : http://dlc.openindiana.org/isos
