So Linus thinks that Solaris/x86 is a joke?
Sorry, I'm not amused.
Solaris on x86 has been undervalued by Sun at times, but it's been brilliant for us for over 5 years now. It's an absolutely serious top-class operating system.
All operating systems have their strengths and weaknesses. Is Solaris perfect? Heck, no, there are lots of things I would like to see fixed. And with OpenSolaris maybe I'll be able to do that myself.
