Using it at work, I'd have to wonder at the sanity of anyone who CHOSE to 
use it at home.. especially if they wanted to do anything that wasn't 
'solaris certified', and didnt have a current solaris maintenance 
contract...  You can't upgrade *anything* on Sol 10 without having a
maintenance contract to download the patches...  I have a client with a 
little sun box in my server room that they got me to shove Sol 10 on for 
their dev environment.. They're currently waiting till I have time to do a

reinstall to put debian on it the same as their production box, because
got sick of not being able to run the java version of their choice (with
10, unless you have maintenance, you're stuck with the version that
with 10.. :(

IMHO, if you want to play with slowaris at home, use 8 or 9, but stay as
away from 10 as you can!   :)
