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.

What I would like to see is version of Solaris that wouldn't compete with RHEL, but with Debian/Ubuntu, because this is what most people are looking for nowdays.


I would like to point you towards Belenix. http://www.genunix.org/distributions/belenix_site/?q=home

I think it might be what you are looking for. Works quite well, and is rather speedy. It does have an odd tendency to only recognize 80GBs of a hard drive though.
