Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Well, Oracle went from one of those big enterprise-serving companies most of us don't deal with to one of the more hated companies in our little community. Not only did they just sue Google over Android and its use of Java-related technologies, they also just officially killed off OpenSolaris. Solaris will still be open source, but source code will only come after each major release - development will happen behind closed doors.

Yep, Oracle pushes Solaris to big enterprises.

Solaris will be the same as AIX and HPUX. Solaris systems from Oracle, AIX systems from IBM and HPUX systems from HP.

And if you don't have the big bucks to get serious system, then there is always *BSD and Linux but don't come knocking on the Oracle door then.
