Still waiting. It's just not meant to be. Perhaps it was on a first-come-first-served basis. Another version will be out by the time we get our free copies!

I think things are looking up. I received my first Solaris e-newsletter in my e-mail recently. At least I know someone actually received and processed my request. (Even if it was only to SPAM me.) :(

I've ordered mine, I have tried looking glass on ubuntu and found it to be quite doggish, I may set up a 'demo' install of Solaris and Looking Glass to show off to people...

Ok. Ok. Now I've re-ordered as well. We'll see if it comes. I may actually just try to torrent it instead.

Mine took three weeks to arrive.

I actually tried installing it, too, but eventually gave up - it seemed to want to overwrite existing partitions, and I couldn't figure out how to persuade it not to.

Here's your problem. This is from the "Getting Started" pages:

"Before partitioning a system, you must do the following:

*

Ensure that you have at least 14 Mbytes of disk space for a system with more than one operating system.
"

So you'd better make sure you've got that 14MB in reserve. :D

Actually received the Developer Edition in the mail today. Nice promo for a game design contest. When I grabbed it out of my mailbox, I almost threw it away. It looked like an AOL disc.

This would be interesting to see if I can port HPLIP to Solaris 10 to get my PSC1110 to work on Solaris. If not, well, I have an old Deskpro that I can install Solaris 10 on.

I have taken interest in Solaris as I have an old Dell OptiPlex GXpro that is running Solaris 8.
