Solaris 9 GNOME 2|
Nautilus is highly customizable. You can resize the icons to a variety
of sizes. You can make them smaller or they can be very large.
Also the Side Pane and other objects can have a custom background.
Nautilus sort of acts like a web browser. You can bookmark URLs and
folders from the Bookmarks menu.. It can retrieve internet URLs but will
only display HTML as text. This version also includes a basic HTML renderer
that can be sleeted for viewing HTML documents, but it is not entirely
For opening HTML documents Solaris 9 includes the old Netscape 4 web
Panels can be added and customized, adding such things as a CD player,
a command line box, a log out button, a lock screen button, and custom
icons to any program.
The GNOME desktop also includes a help system called "yelp".
I think this system can use all the yelp it can get. These screen shots
can't show it but I found the entire user interface to be rather sluggish.
Part of this might be because I used older hardware but I expected more
since this is also an older OS.
This shows a few of the multimedia applications that are included.
Like most Unix systems, Solaris doesn't just automatically make the
floppy disk available when inserted. It must be manually told told to check
for a disk.
