  The French 3rd generation synchrotron light source, SOLEIL, was successfully commissioned in 2006. The Linac and the Booster are operational at their design performances. During the early phase of the storage ring commissioning, the essential design parameters were reached very quickly while the project incorporates some innovative techniques such as the use of a superconducting RF cavity, solid state RF amplifiers, NEG coating for all straight parts of the storage ring and new BPM electronics. Prior to the start of the commissioning, some insertion devices and most of the insertion devices low gap vacuum vessels, including 10 mm inner vertical aperture vessels for the Apple-II type, were installed on the ring. The main results of the commissioning will be reviewed here, including discussion on diagnostics performances, orbit stability and control, optics correction, Top-up and the challenges in achieving operational status. The 10 beamlines of phase 1 are now under commissioning and regular user operation will start by spring 2007.
