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?

In my view, this is non optimal behavior from Linux:

...

Linux over allocates RAM.

...

Maybe this has something to do with the declining quality of the Linux code? Linux kernel hacker Andrew Morton explains:

Or this thread:

"the [Linux source] tree breaks every day, and it's becoming an extremely non-fun environment to work in. We need to slow down the merging, we need to review things more, we need people to test their [...] changes!"

...

I think it has something to do with Linux not having stable ABIs?

"Quite extensive troll collection you have there."

Thanx! But it isnt hard to find such links. You know, some of those "troll" links are from Linux kernel mail list, where Linus Torvalds discuss in the thread. Do you call Linus a troll? Do you call Linux kernel mail list a troll site? Maybe you should reread those links again, before you call them troll?

If Linus himself wrote that "Linux has no stable ABI" on his blog then that blog would also be troll? Hmmm?
