I created Pulsar OS because there is no solaris distribution available, that fits my needs. There are a few live cd’s and installers out there, but no distribution has only read only access to the disk. I needed this to build a homeserver nas for my media. I have a via epia motherboard with a cf card plugged in. On CF cards you should not write to much, because you only have a limited range of write access. Thats why I started with the pulsar development. At boot time the whole system will be loaded into the ram (as other distributions).
To avoid heavy usage of ram i mount the usr filesystem read only from the disk itself. This avoids the heavy writes from the operating system. I also trimmed the filesystem of opensolaris and removed unnecessary libs and binaries to clean up some space.
