gnaremooz is one of several users to mention Thomas Greene's look at Sun's supposed 'Linux Killer'
. From the article: "If Sun gets very serious about Solaris 10 on x86 and the Open Solaris project that it hopes will nourish it, Linux vendors had better get very worried. That's because, in the many areas where Linux is miles ahead of Solaris, Sun stands a good chance of catching up quickly if it has the will, whereas in the many areas where Solaris is miles ahead, the Linux community will be hard pressed to narrow the gap."
However, he goes on to describe many more difficulties with an install of Solaris than I seem to remember having with just about any recent Linux install.
