Linux When it comes to the fast-moving business of trading stocks, bonds and derivatives, the world's financial exchanges are finding an ally in Linux. As late as 2007, Wall Street exchanges were still largely run on Unix . . . Over the past few years however, Linux has crept into this market, showing up first in ancillary systems and then running a few core exchanges.

To add some background to that version. Solaris 2.6 is essentially Solaris 6(released 1998), since Solaris 2.7 became Solaris 7. It's like the J2SE 1.4 to Java 5 move.

Solaris is a very good system, but I wouldn't call it marvellous.
