Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Oracle today announced Oracle Solaris 11.1, delivering over 300 new performance and feature enhancements to the Oracle Solaris 11 product family." This stuff goes way over my head.

solaris is so good it is an absolute tragedy that it also sucks.

thom, all you need to know is that the meager changes in solaris 11.1 are closer to being stripped from its bones by the FOSS community to give illumos a bit of extra juice like in "the mummy" when the guy who looks kind of like billy zane but isnt eats the people who woke him up. arnold vosloo gonna fk oracle up. that's what you need to know.

Most commercial UNIX systems suck, if you compare them with Linux and BSD. At least in user friendliness.

When installed out of the box, most still seem to live in the 70's, early 80's.

Still, they are quite robust, and they even offer stable APIs!
