This is interesting. Does this also apply for 3D applications? I'm sure there are many of us who would be interested in some benchmarks of different Linux applications under both Linux and Solaris. Wouldn't it be crazy if Solaris ran some of the more popular desktop applications faster than a random popular Linux distro such as Ubuntu or Fedora? If that were the case and Sun continued to polish Solaris to make it more user-friendly, then I'm sure you would see many more people trying out this OS.
