You are right that noone really cares about solaris outside of high end servers, but I don't think sun is crying over it. Whether or not Solaris runs on iPods is completely irrelevant to how well it runs on the high end servers it was designed for.

I do get where you are coming from, but I think it is an odd point to bring up. The best operating systems (imho) are the ones that focus on a single task and do it very well, not the ones that do everything in an average way.
