I don't get the name, but more power to them.

I cut my teeth on FreeBSD and BSDi long before Linux, and Solaris was always this solid, go to OS for prod databases and firewalls.

HPUX - I guess it was ok running OpenView when it would actually not panic Irix - Terribly insecure but very pretty. Still have an Indio2 AIX - Meh. Everything abstracted away via smit and its brethren Tru64 - Never really minded using that for Oracle and didn't need to pay Veritas for a clustered file system

I am not affiliated with the site and I have no idea if you can legally download this stuff.

As a self-described hipster, who happens to love Solaris, this name offends me (just a bit).

Well, looks like you're doing it wrong

> Members of the subculture typically do not self-identify as hipsters

From https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hipster_(contemporary_subcul...

"I was self-identifying as a hipster before it was cool."

I think the statute of limitations for complaints has passed.
