LXer: Solaris vs. Linux: Framework for the Comparison in Large Enterprise Environments

Published at LXer:

This is not a scientific comparison per se but more of an attempt to formulate the framework for comparison that might be used by future authors. Actually the fact that a particular person is interested in the theme to the extent that he/she wrote such a paper is a strong argument against his/her depth of knowledge in one or both OSes that he/she tries to compare ;-). Author conclusion is as follows: "All-in-all Solaris is a powerful, stable, conformant-to-standards OS that can run many open source applications as well as Linux, and some (mainly multithreaded applications) better than Linux. Like in the cases of Red Hat and Suse, the cost of support is extra, but it is more reasonably priced. Security patches are free which makes Solaris similar to Windows."
