Sparcstation 20: Solaris 9 installs and runs ... but it's so Solarisy

,----[ Quote ]
| Curiously, when I ran NetBSD on the Sparc, the Firefox PACKAGE wouldn't 
| install. Not a port that needed to be compiled, but a precompiled package 
| built for the 32-bit Sparc architecture. That didn't give me a whole lot of 
| hope for pkgsrc, which theoretically can be used to bring NetBSD packages 
| into OpenBSD and other OSes. (DragonFlyBSD uses NetBSD packages, and that's a 
| great way for the FreeBSD-derived DragonFly to have a huge package 
| repository, and it makes me want to try it on my i386 hardware).

Sun's Solaris success paves way for next-gen OS push

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux enjoys an added bonus over both Solaris and Windows with its 
| open reputation and backing from a wide variety of vendors. The open
| source OS benefits from healthy developer interest and diverse
| investment. Red Hat may dominate server-side Linux, but that does
| little to cramp the OS's communal cachet.
