Solaris Sparc Sun


I am a very new person to SOLARIS

Please tell me....
Like...we have


x-86 (or Intel) - Architecture
Pentium (or Celeron)- Processor
Windows - Operating System

can be analogous to?

SUN - Architecture
SPARC - Processor
SOLARIS - Operating System

Am I right?

>>> SUN - Architecture

SUN - Microsoft/Intel. Wonder if you ever heard about Java Or Sun Microsystems

>>> SPARC - Processor
SPARC - Architecture
UltraSPARC series (US II, US III, US III+, US IV etc.,) - Processor

I have heard about SUN. I just wanted to find out what the architecture was called. Like Intel being a common word for "PC" architecture (x-86) I thought of SUN.

But now I know..
And I will keep this in mind

Thankyou!

@redhatrosh (about your kernel)

To upgrade your kernel use yum or up2date

I use RedHat Linux 9.0 (2.4.20-8). I feel, yum is used in SuSe. Also, for using my up2date do I require a higher bandwidth or is the bandwidth that I obtain in Dial-up internet connection fine?
