Beginning from end - you didn't answered some of my questions. It seems that you didn't try Linux and Solaris on desktop, otherwise you should notice that responsiveness is better in Linux. Oh, do you know what amount of memory is recommended for Solaris? Imagine, Sun is falling, there are many Solaris fanboys and everyone can do benchmarks. I bet that many of them are made by Sun friends. Phoronix benchmark is more objective in this case (hopefully). You showed me benchmark in which Solaris is better on greater number of CPU's. In my opinion this benchmark is crap, because of problem with one library which breaks scaling on Linux. I bet person who did that test didn't replaced broken library, but ok, it doesn't matter right now. I wonder why you consider that Solaris is better, faster etc. if you only base your opinions on one type of test? Have you anything more to say about Linux stability? How do you test it (in one of my links Solaris just hung)? I'd love to know why Solaris came out on top for you. Because of some Sun friendly links?
You see, only hard facts impress upon me. You can state whatever you want, but that doesnt really matter. Only benchmarks and hard facts count. Otherwise it is just opionions and marketing talk. That is why I prefer Solaris right now because there are lots of links showing Solaris being superior, but no links showing Linux being superior. Why is that, if Linux really were superior?
PS. I still would like to know more about your statement that you have tried both Solaris and Linux, and Linux came out on top. How, and when did you do that? In what aspect did Solaris fail? You havent answered. Is it true that you did try both out?
Anyway, farewell for now.
