There has been a lot of talk about the StormOS installer which is basically the Nexenta Core Platform 2 installer with a few modifications. Most of this talk has about how slow (which has been fixed) it is and user unfriendly (which has not been fixed) it is.
For a server its fine but it's not for the desktop, so we have a few options the way I see it.
We can write a new installer which is something I started to do but no longer think this is the route to take, and we start the road to something new, or we can pick a side: OpenSolaris or Ubuntu. If we go the OpenSolaris route we use the Caiman installer, if we go the Ubuntu route we use the Ubiquity installer.
Personally I think Ubiquity is the way to go, but I'm interested in what others have to say on the topic.
On a similar note:
A new script "nexenta2stormos.sh" will be available soon to make the installation of StormOS on top on NCP2 easier and less prone to error.
