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."

I'm not sure how much the MS suggestion would help. We run all the flavors of it at work, and I'm not overly impressed. Don't get me wrong, it isn't bad by any means, but I'll take AIX any day of the week over it (or another *nix...or openVMS is pretty sweet)
