Kudos to the developers of BeleniX, it is a open source Solaris operating system that can run directly from a CD/DVD without installing anything on the hard disk. Belenix was presented and demonstrated in the 6th Annual Conference of Free and Open Source Software here in Bangalore, India. BeleniX was tweaked and modified to run from a pen drive. As storage capacity is becoming more and more indirectly proportional to the size of the device itself apparently the future seems to be to carry the entire hard disk in your pocket and plug it in wherever you are and feel at home. Here is the local newspaper article “PC software on your key chain!” that talks about BeleniX and its developers.
