StormOS is the first desktop distribution based on Nexenta Core Platform which combines the power of the Solaris kernel with the ease of use of Ubuntu. It aims to be a lightweight OS with everything the average user would want out-of-the-box.
The project was started due to my dissatisfaction with OpenSolaris. I found it slow on my netbook, and although it runs great on my desktop I dislike IPS. APT is much nicer.
Here are some key features of "StormOS":
· Polished Xfce 4 Desktop enviroment
· Abiword word processor
· Gnumeric spreadsheet
· Gimp - GNU Image Manipulation Program
· Rhythmbox Music Player with support for iPod + iTunes sharing and Last.fm
· Ristretto image viewer
· Fast and customizable Firefox 3 web browser
· Easy package management with Synaptic Package Manager and gdebi
· Transmission bittorrent client
· Evince PDF viewer
· File-roller archive manager with Thunar integration
