Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Google is experimenting with the open-source version of Sun's Solaris operating system as a possible long-term prelude to replacing its massive global network of Linux servers, according to sources. With dozens of data centers worldwide estimated to house hundreds of thousands of Intel servers supporting its flagship search engine, a Google move to OpenSolaris would be another of several recent votes of confidence for the platform."

I will give the guy in the article who had server crashes every three days a clue, chances are it is an application bug made by your own developers.

If an application is causing their Linux systems to panic, you bet there's something wrong with Linux. If code outside the kernel causes a panic, it's most certainly a bug and a problem.
