SunOS vs Solaris10


Yeah i am used to working with linux box, but at this shop they have something different.

Code:
bash-3.00$ uname -a
SunOS casperbox 5.10 Generic_125100-10 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V240
is SunOS same thing as Solaris 10?

yes, SunOS 5.9 is Solaris 5.9, SunOS 5.10 is Solaris 10.
