Solaris Express on CD?


WTF, I am trying my new computer here, but my old DVD reader doesnt like the Express DVD. I had the same issue with Solaris 10 DVD, but the CDs worked fine. Where can I get CD for Solaris Express?

I thought that Express Developer edition is more stable than the Express Community version? The link you showed me, is the community version. I hoped to run a stable version, either Solaris 10, or Express Developer version. Earlier you said that Community edition is stable too, despite its beta status? Have you had any issues with community edition? I couldnt find CD for developer ed. As my motherboard ASROCK P4V88 only accepts Solaris CD to boot from, I have tried 3 different DVD readers now, and none of them would boot from Developer ed DVD. Right now I am downloading express community ed, build 67 - hoping that build 67 and build 64a (express developer) is very similar in terms of stability.

I am a bit worried about instability of build 67 in comparison with 64a. But you have never had issuses with express community verision? And it is the community version you use all the time, not express developer?

Actually, when it is stated a version is more stable than an other, that really means the version was more thoroughly tested, not that the other version is unstable by design. Usually the newer versions include bug fixes so the later the better. Newer versions contains also new implementations or new features, and the risk is here, but still low.
I run mostly community versions, and I upgrade when some new appealing feature looks good to me. As I wrote, I never had a kernel panic or data loss due to the O/S beta status. Of course the is some risk running unsupported software, but that's fine with me. I'm not running a nuclear plant or similar critical applications on my laptops and PCs
