More Details on Sun’s Project Indiana

So what has Sun got in mind for Project Indiana?  Its already made nice with Ubuntu.  And other people have already started on Solaris/Linux hybrids.  It sure looks like an attempt to recapture back-room data center business that left for RedHat.


[Phoronix] New Project Indiana Details Emerge

Among the advantages of Project Indiana is that it will use Sun’s ZFS as the default file-system, and Project Indiana will be taking full advantage of its abilities to create snapshots and perform rollbacks if something with the system’s software goes wrong. With Sun’s past work with the GNOME project, GNOME will be the desktop environment in Project Indiana said Ian Murdock. He had gone on to reiterate several other basic points such as the single CD installation with network-based package management (likely powered by apt). Project Indiana will also be easier to acquire, as it will be available through mirrors that do not need registration and will be distributed via Bit Torrent. Another goal of Ian’s is also to modernize the command line.
