    There is at most some horribly outdated list from Illumos here https://illumos.org/hcl/ and some very limited community-generated list in the wiki

    that was compiled by community members by booting the liveCD and run their driver detection utility. Yeah that's great confidence for a businness that is going to run some core services to use mostly consumer hardware that was "tested" and "validated" by a random community member in a few minutes.

    FreeBSD on the other hand has a decent list of commercial vendors that sell "certified hardware" (certified by themselves but it's good enough) and provide paid commercial support https://www.freebsd.org/commercial/

    This isn't Solaris, stop thinking it is anything more than a hobby OS. None uses OpenIndiana on serious hardware. Serious businness users are still using Solaris or have migrated to something else.
    Thanks buddy. Real good post.. Hey I was down in the lobby earlier and I guess a large shipment of DND figurines got delivered here by mistake.. They were going to throw them out but if you hurry...
