OpenSolaris – The Better OS

So you are Linux Demigod? Have you seen OpenSolaris. What other OS can you plop on a lowly PC and scale it to more than 128 processors running multiple cores. It can run Linux code, virtualize itself or other OS’s, removes the painful init.d and it’s start/stop scripts, has a kernel tracing system called Dtrace that plops exception probes right in a running kernel, has a far superior kernel thread mechanism than anything out there, and it enjoys the benefits of ZFS: Zettabyte File System — a file system that can handle double bit parity RAID 10 or V, create backup snapshots, implement pools of cheap storage into aggregates of simple virtulized storage (why even go HW Raid?). And the finale: It is openSource!
