Insights on the Solaris OS Versus Linux

Posted by marinasum on March 11, 2009 at 11:48 AM PDT

LinuxWorld's recent interview with Sun VP Jim McHugh is full of enlightening observations on the Solaris OS, which is now open source as the OpenSolaris Project. You'll read about the advantages of Solaris over other platforms, the number of Solaris shipments in the last five years, the latest status of the OpenSolaris Project, the future versions of Solaris and OpenSolaris, and other interesting topics.

It's a lengthy yet noteworthy Q&A. Take this quote, for example:

It really boils down to there's a group of people that weren't traditional Solaris admins or Solaris users who are looking at OpenSolaris and saying, "Hey, this is good stuff, take it seriously." Maybe that's why we're seeing more activity where people feel a need to come out really strongly and make strong statements against Solaris, because there's a growing base of supporters of Solaris who are defending it.

Go Solaris and OpenSolaris!
