Open Indiana can even be called an analogue to GNU/Linux.But, instead of a monolithic Linux kernel, it uses the OS/Net-based derivative kernel known as Illumos, which is 100 per cent ABI compatible with the Solaris kernel.

Later, Sun began providing Sun OS, a customized 4.1 BSD UNIX, as the operating system for its workstations.

In the late 1980s, AT&T tapped Sun to help them develop the next release of their branded UNIX, and in 1988 announced they would purchase up to a 20% stake in Sun.

By the mid-1990s, the ensuing UNIX wars had largely subsided, AT&T had sold off their UNIX interests, and the relationship between the two companies was significantly reduced.

Sun used SVR4 as the foundation for Solaris 2, which became the successor to Sun OS.

But, now I was confined to 640x480, 800x6x768 screen sizes.

I made some changes to the file that have always worked with Net BSD, Free BSD and Open BSD installations.

Solaris was historically developed as proprietary software.

In June 2005, Sun Microsystems released most of the codebase under the CDDL license, and founded the Open Solaris open source project.

In August 2010, Oracle discontinued providing public updates to the source code of the Solaris Kernel, effectively turning Solaris 11 into a closed source proprietary operating system.

However, through the Oracle Technology Network (OTN), industry partners can still gain access to the in-development Solaris source code.

Double click the Install Open Indiana icon, and partitioning the drive will be part of the setup. Therefore, I chose to boot from hard disk and the newly installed Open Indiana OS. Not quite satisfied with this, I opted to install the Virtual Box guest additions.
