Oracle and SUN Sun Microsystems is focusing on Opterons and Solaris x86 for a good reason. Sun has figured out a way to make x86 hardware cheaper than anyone else. Sun is hoping that by leveraging its cost advantages the company will be able to ensure the success of its x86 hardware and Solaris.

Solaris is getting cheap

Which is very good. The fact that the few bucks you spend on Solaris when buying it goes to R&D unlike investments in Red Hat is a good thing to me and is definitely well spent money. I can't wait to get my hands on ZFS =)))

Hopefully the MS blessing will mean that Solaris/Windows networks will work even better in the future...
