Opensolaris version 2008.05 has been released! And as a live cd too. Finally we can see something solid of Indiana. Oh, and they get a brand new website/logo as well.

See some first impressions, some (relatively minor) problems in this first version, a handy tip on additional package needed to develop stuff, and finally extremely useful instructions to install it on a xen domU.

Download it from, some of the mirrors (torrent included), metalink or request a free cd (you can order more than one if you’re doing an installfest or somesuch iirc)

edit: here’s a review.

edit2: you can find out aout my struggles with this system up above here.
