love love love the colors!
Thanks! That seems to be the theme here; I had no idea there were so many Sun Microsystems fans out there! GO SOLARIS!

i am so jealous of your commute.
I used to commute THREE HOURS A DAY. I decided when I came back I was going to live as close as I could to work. McKinney, TX is the second-fastest growing city in the nation, right behind West Las Vegas. I'm still 45-minutes North of Dallas...if I speed...and there's no traffic...

I'm definitely not a fan of Solaris. However, I do feel like Sun should receive kudos for Java. That having been said I think that the colors are great for a study because they are professional and mean business without be stiff or clinical. In short, they lend to a good work environment; without seeing the room I won't officially say that the colors don't help creativity. Creativity is helped by bright, bold colors.

Imagine if your study were a Ubuntu color theme. A Fedora theme may work, but something tells me you'd really want some blue in there. Maybe if you just settled on Tux?

I didn't know you were qualified to have an opinion on the matter.

I think it'll be awesome!

Do I have to suck Solaris dick or something to get qualified? WTF?

Not at all! I was just unaware that you've done anything whatsoever, ever, on a Solaris box. Before people make statements such as yours, they've usually installed the product, used the product, and then by doing, done the same thing with another product they've used.

For example, I know you used to run Red Hat, and now you run ubuntu. You probably have opinions about each of them, and that's fine. Have you ever run Solaris?

I've got a better idea, why don't you go ahead, and in your own words tell us "definitively" why your not a fan of Solaris. Thanks

Now that logic makes a little more sense. See, I thought you were telling me I didn't have the right to comment because I wasn't in the Solaris corner.

No, I don't have any direct experience with Solaris. And you are right, I do have opinions about Red Hat/Fedora and Ubuntu. I think that Red Hat/Fedora makes a wonderful product, but I think that it's ridiculous that you have to update four different files to make a simple change in a service. Furthemore, my experience with Red Hat/Fedora is that it is a very unstable OS (at least it's a very unstable desktop OS) and is a resource hog, but the OS comes with a lot of great tools.

Ubuntu was by far the easiest flavor of Linux to pick up and use. It just worked and I was able to get Samba up and running in record time. In fact, I've done everything I wanted to with Ubuntu in record time and so now it's time to turn to development and production. Read the end of my latest post for more details.

My gripe against Solaris is that it natively runs on proprietary hardware and uses non-standard peripherals. (e.g. you have to have a keyboard with a special connector) I just don't see the advantage of running a non-standard OS on non-standard hardware. I'm sure there's a reason for all of this, but I haven't found it and at this point, Excepting adding a job skill or making an attempt to be an uber-geek, I don't see why I would want to learn Solaris. Hell, even the commands are different!
