The fail is on your side

If you have spent more time on following what happend to OpenSolaris than on just complaining, you would know that you can find an open Solaris download at http://openindiana.org/download/

And Solaris 11 is downloadable at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/solaris11/downloads/index.html

McNealys big mistake

Yes, one of the big mistakes Scott did was giving up Solaris on x86. That gave Linux the space it never deserved.

RE: Dress code?

That's only in the UK. They required a full three piece suit to enter some office areas not to offend higher management there. Note that Scott always wore jeans...

So, how hard was it really to figure out that MySQL and Oracle are in different parts of the playground? It's only Monty that hasn't got it, but he never will...

@Tim99

There's not necessarily any virtualization overhead in Unix, at least not with Solaris containers/zones. It can be quite useful, especially if you sell capacity to different customers. Not so nice to run them all in the same OS instance...

@Scott K. Handy; When a VP from IBM make comments on ElReg he must be really scared of what's coming from the competitors.
