Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris How does OpenSolaris, Sun's effort to free its big-iron OS, fare from a Linux user's point of view? Is it merely a passable curiosity right now, or is it truly worth installing? Linux Format takes OpenSolaris for a test drive, examining the similarities and differences to a typical Linux distro.

Member since:

Solaris replaced Linux and Xen on this box, and I have to say that Xen crawled (compared to zones)...

You are comparing Hypervisor type 1 performance (xen) to Os level wirtualization (zones/containers) so its like you compare apples to oranges.

Your comparasion would be good if you would compare Solaris' xVM - implementation of Xen and Xen on Linux.
