 Mostly because OI aims to be a server and desktop operating system, while OmniOS only aims at servers. Due to this the overall package selection of OI appears less //fresh//.

 +OI seems to be moving slower than OmniOS (time from bugfixes to release), however this may just be my perception. ​

 +==== DilOS ====
 +I really like what I'm seeing here. APT instead of IPS, lots of extra'​s like lx zone, kvm and kvm for non-ept...
 +On the other hand, the installer is not very user friendly, I gave it a 4 because it does more or less the bare minimum an installer should do.
 +
 +However for now my concern is that it's development rests on one man. If he quits the project is dead.
 +
 +Personally I would like to see large things of this merged to OI with a nice upgrade path. (APT, KVM, lx zone)
 +
 +Some smaller annoyances, doing a clean upgrade is not as streamlined as using IPS.
 +Going on my linux instinct I destroyed my first install :s
