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.'

The thing is that in Datacenters people are using X86. And on X86 and Intel 64 Bit Linux "smokes" Solaris and FreeBSD.

People say that Solaris and BSD are more stable etc. But interesting that Yahoo uses BSD and Solaris, Google is using Linux and smoking Yahoo and Microsoft.

Linux is the future on the server. Apple is the future on the Desktop it seems.
