Hi will, does opensolaris have all the necessary codecs like mp3 wma etc for layin music files? it is important for new users to be able to use the OS without the need for expert knowledge. also I would like to ask whether orca, music files and skype all can work at the same time without creating any issues.
I don't know what codecs are included by default, but regarding applcations using sound running together, I feel this is something which opensolaris has correct. I booted the live CD on my laptop (sound card based on the intel i810 chipset) had orca running and played a wave file sound and both the speech and sound came out together. Its just a shame that opensolaris lacks support for a number of sound cards which have been supported in Linux for quite some time now (I don't know about other hardware).
Thanks Aruni. On 11/13/08, Willie Walker <William Walker sun com> wrote:Hi Mike: I'm certainly hoping the 2008.11 release will come out this month. I'm not sure of an exact date, though. You can get the ISO's from http://genunix.org/. Since I'm not a lawyer, I'm not qualified to provide any interpretation of the licensing scheme. If I personally saw an ISO on a site like http://genunix.org, however, and I was able to download it without clicking through a license agreement, like you can at http://genunix.org, I think I personally would feel comfortable burning a disc and giving it to my friends and family. But, I'm not a lawyer and I am not qualified to interpret license agreements, so my conjecture of what my personal actions might be really are not something that should be taken as any form of legal intepretation or recommendation.

When will the final release be out? First, is there a add remove programs feature that works with Orca in OpenSolaris? Second, how free is the OpenSolaris operating system compared to Linux? The reason I ask is I would like to share the operating system with others who have no way or no time to download it.
