Re: It was designed to fail

"Linux has spent years ripping off features from Solaris and illumos". If there is still something worth copying from Solaris or any other OS then it will be copied. That is how every industry works and should work. With copying I also mean "learning from". More people are today involved in developing Linux than in any other *nix* system. In the top500 super computer list you find only about 10 other *nix* systems, the rest is Linux.
