illumian, a new illumos based distro

This iso has become a rarity: as you know, NCP4 never saw the light:





Nevertheless illumos has now the second distribution - illumian, where the packaging system is the main difference from the OpenIndiana and the first iso has a very simple text-mode installer developed by Nexenta for the NCP distribution.
I hope illumian will continue to grow and improve, and for people who like Solaris but feel it could use a more practical "apt-get", illumian is exceptional.

Great to see your blog is still alive! :-)

Are there any SPARC distributions left? Looks like MilaX 0.3.2 (which is by the way not downloadable anymore) was really the last one...
