One question, is the 2006 in the following a holdover from last year, i.e. should it be 2007?

* Updated the year.
* OpenSolaris is not a Linux distribution.

"Server Distribution of the Year" does not mean "Linux Server Distribution of the Year"

Even better argument is that BSD's and Solaris a re in many ways a lot more better suited for Server work.
