SXCE and Solaris: Opinions
I've been testing SXCE builds in VirtualBox on my Mac for a few months, just to get experience on using another major Unix. What are your opinions on SXCE and Solaris (not the OpenSolaris distribution)?
Personally, I like SXCE a lot in that it's a Unix with great integration and an amazing set of built-in applications. It requires little work to get a desktop setup (of course, my post-install script for FreeBSD automates this too), and it applications that cover day to day use. It's basically a preset system like Mac OS X, which is what it excels at. If you want customization, then you won't find it here.
