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.

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

I'm not calling it marvellous either but there's only one system in the big iron UNIX space that competes and that's AIX. HP-UX seems to be a dying system and Linux just isn't mature enough. The BSDs on X86 would be far more interesting but X86 isn't known for it's RAS capabilities.
