It's been a long time waiting, but the first OpenSolaris Developer Preview -- or better known as Project Indiana -- has been released! This development preview is not intended for production environments but for developers and those who want to see first-hand the next-generation OpenSolaris desktop experience. We've been "virtually camping" out for this release for the past eighteen hours or so. However, in the morning (US/Eastern time) we will be posting screenshots and much more information. If you want to try out the development preview of Project Indiana, you can download it from Sun.com. Our earlier Project Indiana coverage can be found in the Indiana search index or by searching Phoronix.
