Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris The Linux desktop has come a long way. It's a fully usable, stable, and secure operating system that can be used quite easily by the masses. Not too long ago, Sun figured they could do the same by starting Project Indiana, which is supposed to deliver a complete distribution of OpenSolaris in a manner similar to GNU/Linux. After using the latest version for a while, I'm wondering: why?

Most Linux and Solaris systems are used as servers. I prefer a server that is good at doing server things, to server having a good desktop, and OpenSolaris is a very good server.

Any operating system with a monolithic UNIX-based architecture is so superb for servers.
