OK. Truce. :-)
Your needs, and those of your clients, employer, whatever, are different than mine, and those of my clients, employer, whatever. Fair enough.
I should also say that I probably should not have used your comment about using Sparc hardware at home in my original post.
You mentioned resouce controls. I see your point there. It has not been a problem for me and my clients, but I can see where it could become one.
So, what things does Solaris provide you with that would require "third party tools" in Linux?
Also, do you think that Sun really means it this time? Or will they flip flop again and drop x86/x86_64? It's a fair question. Who knows what Sun is going to "announce" from day to day? (Though they do seem to be stabilizing, lately.)
And I must say, if I had a $5 NIC and my life depended on if "just working" the first time, I would have to choose Linux/FreeBSD/Windows/MacOSX over Solaris. (Couldn't resist that one. Sorry :-)
