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.

> At least I can get the source code to Linux and BSD. Let me know when you finally build your first OpenSolaris system from source.


Solaris doesn't suffer from Linuxitis and hence you don't need recompiling drivers when you patch the Solaris kernel. Solaris , like BSD and unlisk Linux has a stable DDI. Linus purposely designed Linux not to have a stable DDI because how else would you control binary modules taking down the kernel. So rather than have a stable driver interface, he chose having a stable user-level interface and change drivers accordingly. It's just wrong!!!!. if an app has a problem fix the app not the driver.....it's like my Hummer SUV doesn't fit within the lanes on the freeway so the govt. should repave the freeway so that my SUV fits.
