SchilliX – an OpenSolaris based complete open-source operating system
SchilliX contains Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) only.
It runs from CD and can be optionally installed on a hard disk or a USB memory stick.
Sun Microsystem released the OpenSolaris code on June 14, 2005. It contains the modular kernel and userspace software together called “ON” (Operating System/Networking). 3 days after, the SchilliX team released the first OpenSource Distribution called Schillix.
The first release was published on 17 June 2005, by its initial developers: Jörg Schilling, Fabian Otto, Thomas Blaesing, and Tobias Kirschstein.
Version 0.7.1 used the Illumos project for the build.
Version 0.7.2 was the first OpenSolaris-like distro that capable of compiling the OpenSolaris source base.
SchilliX likes to make it easy for people who change from e.g. Linux but not on the expense of reduced default functionality.
The latest version of SchilliX 0.8 was released in August 2012.
