Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

I guess Solaris is still free for non comercial use, or something to that extent, though.


Yeah it is.

I did use Solaris 10 Express for bits and pieces. Before moving most of the servers to Scientific Linux or OpenBSD.

I remember Zones being the big thing Circa 2006.

I think Solaris is too much "proper unix" ... I remember it being harder to use.

With GNU userland it's as hard as Linux or *BSD to use.

Doing specific things on Solaris is very different than Linux and BSD stuff ... It hard to explain IMO Solaris is as different to Linux as Windows is different to BSD ... massively.
