Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris 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.

Solaris cannot kill linux simply because you cannot kill and idea

Nope, but, of course, when articles refer to Linux and the Market, they're not talking "Linux" in the big view bubbling petri dish that Linux is, that will never go away. They're talking RedHat and Novell.

So, while Solaris may have little impact on Linux as a social meme, Sun and Solaris/OpenSolaris CAN have a great impact on RedHat, which is where Linux meets with Money.

Damage RedHat, and you damage Linux, even immortal Linux.
