Anonymous Coward: "They should just port Solaris to x86 and kill Sparc."
What are you talking about??? Solaris has been ported to x86 for a very long long time! More than a decade ago , in fact I think already in the previous millenium.
In fact, many companies run Solaris on x86/64 server and many run it on vmware even!
What Sun refused to do was port Solaris to ITANIUM ... but even Redhat agrees with them on that decision now.
