Thank you Theo: as I said above to Delroy A Blake, I wasn't aware of
OmniOS "Community Edition". And this project certainly deserves being
advertised. So if I may add my own little stone to the wall for that, I
will be glad to do it.

As a matter of fact, I was looking to the exact opposite: I I used a lot
Solaris in the 90s and early 2000s. And I was strongly disappointed to
see what happened to that great OS years after years under the umbrella
of Oracle in the 2010s.

My goal was to say Solaris was still alive -- and there are actively
maintained projects and distributions that have taken up the succession.

Regards,
- Sylvain
