Hi everyone,

especially after todays installation article about Solaris (Express Community Edition) I got interested in trying out Solaris. But I've got some questions:

What is the main difference between the Linux and Solaris kernel? I mean there must be a reason that people are choosing Solaris over Linux. Why for example did you, Michael, try out Solaris?

What packages has SXCE, how current are they and how to update them?

What about playing media, especially non-free videos/mp3s?

Do ATI X1K users can test it at all? Because I didn't see any drivers from ATI.


I only wished I could make the swap to Linux completely, I like it so much, but I'm a hardcore gamer...
