StormOS Hail Beta - A very stormy experience
On paper, StormOS is an excellent technological concept: it is based on Nexenta, which itself is based on Solaris, and packaged with Ubuntu user-land and package management system. In theory, you get Ubuntu-like behavior on top of a UNIX kernel. Sounds like a healthy marriage.
But can it really be the magic blending of the super-advanced ZFS filesystem, the advanced Solaris dual-architecture and the simplest package manager? Can it compare with Linux seamless live CD experience and hardware detection? What about the default choice of the Xfce desktop? How does it fare in the overall scheme of things?
