Getting started with the OpenSolaris by now has become even more easier: Given you signed up for an OpenSolaris community account, you can order a free 2-DVD starter kit containing a whole lot of interesting stuff, including the Solaris Express Community Edition, a set of other OpenSolaris based distributions like Nexenta GNU/Solaris or BeleniX, the OpenSolaris source code, and a whole bunch of other useful goodies. Seems that shipping the items takes two to four weeks – time enough to find me a testbed machine for that. 🙂
