Oracle and SUN Solaris Kernel Developer Eric Schrock is bloging more about the Solaris vs. Linux issue and linux kernel moneky Greg is answering on his blog. More here. Elsewhere, Sun is looking into making OOo's XML format an ISO standard and at license options toward opening the Java source code; here are more thoughts on those, by engineer JBQ.

"solaris is becoming obselete..." - what a stupid and untrue statement of someone who probably has never used solaris.

OpenSolaris and Linux are both open source (or in process) so why cant we just leave the bashing alone and learn from one another and collaborate more? It's pointless to bash one another like this, lets only bash the FEATURES and design of the system (the architectural design of solaris beats linux(very true-ask linus.. but HURD beats solaris..) but linux is more supported, blah blah blah) alot of true arguements that make one seem better than the other...... The bottom line is what's supported and works well enough to lower TCO.. That's really the bottom line. Not political reasons.
