Open Indiana Hipster Install

Open Indiana is basically the modern descendant of Open Solaris. It can kind of be thought of like a “distro” of illumos. Solaris in general is especially significant to me as the platform from which ZFS came from. Solaris has brought excellent new technologies one of which is ZFS. Work on Open Indiana continues along with Open ZFS.

As it turns out, Open Indiana now comes with the Mate desktop.
