Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris The Linux desktop has come a long way. It's a fully usable, stable, and secure operating system that can be used quite easily by the masses. Not too long ago, Sun figured they could do the same by starting Project Indiana, which is supposed to deliver a complete distribution of OpenSolaris in a manner similar to GNU/Linux. After using the latest version for a while, I'm wondering: why?

Open + Solaris = OPEN-SLOW-LARIS.

Truth... Slowlaris got its name for a reason.

It was reliable in production, but it was never 'fast'...HPUX usually smoked it in performance.

Most people have dumped them both and their brothers (AIX, etc) for Linux at this point anyway.

Running solaris is like running a copy of VMS...its useful for historical purposes only.
