SuSE, openSUSE The next version of Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Server will focus on migration technologies and virtualisation, in order to entice users from Unix and take market share from Red Hat, according to a roadmap announced at the company's BrainShare meeting in Salt Lake City. Version 11 of SLES is not due until the middle of 2009, but Novell has announced six main 'themes' for the release, including mission critical servers, virtualisation, interoperability, green IT, Unix migration and desktop Linux. Speaking of SUSE, openSUSE 11.0 alpha 3 has been released.

I think what you're saying about Solaris and Sun are valid, but a lot of organisations choose Solaris for everything you've said and more, with particular consideration to the support services.

Sun can provide end-to-end solutions. Hardware, software, and most importantly support.

Sun's support services are in my experience, second to none which carries enormous influence when choosing a vendor.
