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.

And why would Sun want to be another "Linux" company when they have a better product (Solaris)? Just because IBM and HP did it doesn't mean Sun has to do it.

Some people believe they have the better product, some don't, but that doesn't matter because they've been getting their asses kicked for several years and now they've got the faint hope of some people coming back. Besides, Solaris doesn't matter. What's more interesting is the stuff they do on top of Solaris and that's what could make the real difference for them

Sadly, they just don't get that.
