Oracle and SUN When it comes to dealing with storage, Solaris 10 provides admins with more choices than any other operating system. Right out of the box, it offers two filesystems, two volume managers, an iscsi target and initiator, and, naturally, an NFS server. Add a couple of Sun packages and you have volume replication, a cluster filesystem, and a hierarchical storage manager. Trust your data to the still-in-development features found in OpenSolaris, and you can have a fibre channel target and an in-kernel CIFS server, among other things. True, some of these features can be found in any enterprise-ready UNIX OS. But Solaris 10 integrates all of them into one well-tested package.

Both of those quoted sentences are factual, and I think it's important to understand that technology and politics are never isolated subjects.

However, I understand the spirit of your sentiment. In my defense, I wrote the article both to educate and to entertain. If a person just wants to know about Solaris filesystems, the Sun docs are way better than anything I might write.
