Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Apart from Linux and the various BSD operating systems, there's another open source UNIX-like operating system (actually, it's a certified UNIX): OpenSolaris. There are a few key differences between Linux and OpenSolaris, and TuxRadar lists some of them so that Linux users can dive right into Solaris.

This is not correct. There have only been a few
comparisons of Linux, Windows, and Solaris on the
same hardware. For all three operating systems, it's
the hardware that determines performance, at least to
the first approximation. In the example I saw, with
many benchmarks run on the three operating systems,
each of them came out on top on some of the benchmarks.
In general, all of them were about equal in performance.
