    And again, if my NVIDIA mcp ethernet card doesn't work out of the box, I won't even consider downloading this. It's 2 years I'm waiting for this, I want to see if something has changed. Not sure what's the goal of OpenSolaris, make people compile sources for an ethernet card?
    I'de rather use Windows or Linux, I don't have time for this. I mean, it's year 2009, if a user has to compile sources for his ethernet card, something is going wrong.

      Those external drivers always contained the compiled drivers as well as the sources, so you don't have to compile anything, just install them.

        Well, it's out already in the sense that you can upgrade to it from an earlier build, and the gcc-dev-4 and gcc-432 (if you want just the compiler) packages are available, although you need to set CC=gcc-4.3.2, CXX=g++-4.3.2
