Within a week from now, Sun's Project Indiana
, the OpenSolaris
binary desktop distribution being led by Ian Murdock
will be available for download. The first complete release will arrive in Spring of 2008, but next week's release is intended as a technical preview for those Solaris and Linux users that are interested. We have been telling you for a while now that the first Project Indiana release will arrive before November (New Project Indiana Details Emerge
and Sun's Project Indiana Out By Month's End
), and we just received some additional assurance that it's still on schedule. It has once again been stated that it will arrive on or by October 31 (Indiana mailing list
). It looks like the first release of Project Indiana will be a Halloween release. Like most events, you can expect same-day coverage at Phoronix with plenty of information.
