Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Sun Microsystems has delayed the release of two major features the company has trumpeted as reasons to try its latest version of the Solaris operating system. Eric Schrock, a Solaris kernel programmer, said on his blog in April that he's "completely redesigning the ZFS commands from the ground up" after finding some deficiencies.

You mind citing a few more examples than the obvious references to ZFS and Janus. The basis for my comments about Microsoft go as far back as Windows 2000 (1999), where Microsoft proclaimed they were going to get rid of NetBIOS and WINS (which they still have in Windows Server 2003).

It is no secret that Janus is about using RedHat binaries on Solaris x86, so why should Sun help anyone port applications from Debian? Do you think IBM or HP is going to help you, I'm sure they will if you cut them a big enough check. So what's the problem?
