Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin has said it is time for Solaris to simply move out of the way and yield the future to Linux. 'The future is Linux and Microsoft Windows. It is not Unix or Solaris,' he claims, contending that Sun's strength in long-lifecycle apps is giving way to Linux, as evidenced by the rise of Web apps, where Linux holds a decided advantage, Zemlin claims. With capabilities such as ZFS and DTrace, Sun is trying to compete based on minor features, he says. 'That's literally like noticing the view from a third-story building as it burns to the ground.'

Windows Sucks

Last time I looked when you compare Solaris and Linux its most likely going to be on servers and Mac OS has NO presence on servers at all. (Even though apple pretends to make a server OS)

Unix has been dead since Google started to use Linux and almost all super computers started to using Linux and it started to take over device markets and phone markets.

Linux is mainstream now, we have to face the fact that on the server its Linux and Windows and that is that. And now Linux is going to be marketed like anything else if it's going to continue to grow market share etc.
