Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Sun seeks to apply the lessons of Linux and turn open source Solaris into an operating system to rival Linux and to be as commonly used as Java. Sun Microsystems has ambitious plans for the commercial and open-source versions of its Solaris operating system, hoping to achieve for Solaris the kind of ubiquity already enjoyed by Java. In addition, Sun released Update 4 for Solaris 10 (also called Solaris 08/07), introducing a major enhancement in its OS virtualization technology called Solaris Containers.

That's like me saying Plan9 will challenge MS Windoze. lol.

But all jokes aside I do find OpenSolaris interesting, I'll wait until they perfect it better, with more apps, etc. before installing it on a machine.

You may want to take a look at some of the new more ambitious feats most of the up and coming OSes are striving for ... it may turn out to be dramatic irony.
