OpenSolaris 2008.05

I've just re-installed Open Solaris on my laptop using LiveCD. I was really surprised (positively) when NWAM detected my WiFi, asked me for WEP and during installation I could brows the Internet. However what really surprised me was that after install finished and I rebooted my laptop into Open Solaris it somehow remembered my password and got my WiFi automatically working without asking any questions - really cool.

WEP? Are you sure? Please let me quote Wikipedia:

"Beginning in 2001, several serious weaknesses were identified by cryptanalysts with the result that today a WEP connection can be cracked with readily available software within minutes."
