Oracle and SUN Today Oracle released its latest version of Solaris technology, the Oracle Solaris 11 Express 2010.11 release. It includes a large number of new features not found in either Oracle Solaris 10 or previous OpenSolaris releases including ZFS encryption and deduplication, network-based packaging and provisioning systems, network virtualization, optimized I/O for NUMA platforms and optimized platform support including support for Intel's latest Nehalem and SPARC T3. In addition, Oracle Solaris 10 support is available from within a container/zone so migration of existing systems is greatly simplified. The release is available under a variety of licenses including a supported commercial license on a wide variety of x86 and SPARC platforms.

Regarding Linux vs Solaris. Every serious sysadmin knows that Linux have severe problems with stability, scalability and what not.

I am a sysadmin sweetheart, as are the counltes people who dumped Solaris for Linux over the past ten years, and they didn't come back to Solaris as Sun thought they would. Sun totted out those stability and scalability problems that people weren't having many times and it didn't stop them from ending up losing 100 million a month. Sun is over, as is Solaris if Oracle doesn't do something.

Don't worry, I do know some people like you who are steadfast to the last and it's very sad to watch.
