LOL! Why would I be scared of Open Solaris or Solaris in general. Remember it's Linux that helped kill Solaris not the other way around.


Solaris is dead! That is news to me. May be the billions in revenue Sun made last quarter were fantasy.

Redhat makes $652 million a year. Sun makes $642 million in software revenue not including the service sales for software. If you assume they make even a few hundred million in software services/year from the $4 billion they make in service. Sun easily makes more money per year selling software than Redhat.

Sun's SPARC CMT server line alone makes $1.3 billion+ a year. That line only runs Solaris.
