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?

Kebabbert you're absolutely clueless. In fact it's downright hilarious to read your posts. Every post you make is littered with ancient articles that are no longer relevant to the current state of Linux and quotes taken out of context.

For instance the OOM issue has been fixed for quite a while now. It is no longer relevant. The quotes you use to try to justify Linux code quality being poor is talking about the dev tree not the released kernel. As for drivers it isn't relevant for Linux. The drivers are in-kernel and are fixed by the kernel hackers themselves. The author of the filesystem article you link to at the end is just as clueless as you. He claims that Linux filesystems cannot scale and have poor throughput. He even includes XFS in his criticism! XFS is extremely scalable and high throughput. Claiming otherwise is an obvious sign that you know little about it.
