egad!! solaris is not a program! its an UNIX operating system!!! it was made available for free for the first time last year. the latest version is 10. its more popular in academic circles. it was eclipsed by BSD over 15 years ago. it is made by Sun Microsystems, the same company that makes Java. it would be alot better if it came with looking glass. for those who don't know what looking glass is, it is an alternative to kde/gnome that puts Apple's Aqua to shame. its also made by Sun.
as for Mr. Mixx's advise, follow the non-windows part
he knows his stuff, just not UNIX
