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?

Some forgot to mention that OpenSolaris is production ready and free.
It has also has crash dumps and panic utilities build in the system to help troubleshoot buggy applications. For RedHat you need to install a netdump server to support this feature.
Have you ever tried to mirror root partition on linux or worked with RAIDs (VolumeManagement)?
Solaris FC and Storage Multipathing Software included with Solaris. Network cards bonding is easy to implement.
