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.

The author of this article is clearly a tacky, presumptuous speculator

Don't twist words. My comments were quite obviously in reference to a particular sentence. (I'd add that I enjoyed the majority of your essay.)

If I could find just two 'folks' who like linux and resent non-linux hype relating to ZFS, it would make my statement technically a fact.

Facts are verifiable through credible references. This is basic Supported Argument 101.

Having spent my time in academia, I am tired of this kind of sophistry of "demonstrating facts".

Good god, man. What academic world do you come from where you don't have to demonstrate facts? You're the one insisting that your statements are fact.

Sure you're entitled to your opinion. But don't confuse facts with speculation. That is all.
