|Transitioning From Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11 Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
Oracle Solaris 11 introduces several important changes to the desktop environment. The default desktop is now the Oracle Solaris Desktop, which includes GNOME 2.30 from the GNOME Foundation, the Firefox web browser, Thunderbird Email client, and the Lightning calendar manager from the Mozilla Foundation.
Note - In Oracle Solaris 11 the login manager has changed from CDE to the GNOME Desktop Manager (GDM). If you are transitioning from Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11, and you previously customized your CDE login, review your display management configuration, as you might need to make some changes to the GDM configuration to ensure it works as expected.
