Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Sun's CEO Jonathan Schwartz loves to splatter the media with the line that Windows, Red Hat Linux and Solaris stand as the only operating systems of significance in the server kingdom. We've spent the last few years struggling to appreciate the seriousness of that claim. Sun's declining system sales failed to inspire much optimism about the company conquering the data centers of tomorrow with a deflating 'venerable' OS. A couple of recent items, however, have tweaked our view of Schwartz's favored claim. It could well be that Solaris - of all things - provides the 'iPod moment' Sun seeks." In the meantime, Sun upped the speed of some of its SPARC chips.

Wow, you almost fooled me into thinking that you know what you are talking about. But luckily you wrote this gem:

stephanem: We bitch and moan about Microsoft and DLL hell?. Try installing an RPM from Fedora 6 to CentOS 4 - they both have the same lineage - aka Redhat EL4.

Just to bother you with some facts, CentOS 4 is a clone of RHEL 4, not a descendant. Fedora Core 6 on the other hand is only a descendant of RHEL 4 if you turn the development process around, which, as Red Hat likes to say, uses Fedora as a testbed for hot, new technology which will slowly migrate into RHEL.

Really, had this been any other industry there would be a govt/senate inquiry about why things aren't compatible!. Imagine if automakers didn't all comply with steering wheels on the left and shifter to the right of the steering?.

Mother lode!
1) Imagine the willful abuse of syntax of the english language. Gomorrah!
2) A small hint for lemmings like you, that scream for state control at every corner: there are no ANSI standards for the layout of control utilities in cars.
3) Why isn't there an inquiry by the government into the fact that the convicted violator of the Sherman Act, Microsoft, is not complying to existing ISO and ANSI standards?
