Solaris 10 1/06

Just updated to Solaris 10 1/06 on my laptop.

Notable changes: grub is used instead of old boot assistant and console is not white on black 🙂

Still not convinced why Java Desktop System is better than CDE 🙂
Installed firefox, thunderbird 1.5 and a bunch of stuff from Solaris Companion DVD (just needed pico or nano but finally I did install about 300MB…) Old habits die hard!

Very usable system, StarOffice just works, still no sound (audio810 does not work as advertised, everybody says it should work ‘out of the box’ on my hardware).
