Dyson – a general-purpose operating system, a Debian derivative using the illumos kernel, libc, and SMF init system (formerly OpenSolaris).

Dyson is built from scratch to be as similar to Debian as possible, i.e. most of Debian packages should build on Dyson without changes, and architecture-independent packages (arch all in Debian terms) should be installable without modification.

It provides features such as: ZFS, Solaris Containers, IPFilter, Dtrace, OpenSolaris Network Virtualization, Resource Control (also known as Crossbow), Advanced Packaging Tool (APT) and many packages.

Currently Dyson only runs on x86_64 processors (it is fully 64-bit).
The live ISO image provides a simple, text based installer.
