Which, unfortunately, seems to guarantee that in general Solaris will be
replaced by something more unstable out there.
Funny? Only if you're twisted.
Good for us? Only if we're willing to change.

When a large customer of ours went from HP/UX to Linux, we all expected
to see savings. Perhaps one day we will, but to begin with, the HP
support/upgrade stuff on Linux was - surprise - about the same price as
on HP/UX. Then, of course, they also wanted RAC, and that's where the
whole financial wagon went South.
Proving that it's takes less work to run ORACLE on Solaris LONG TERM (in this
case > 10 years).
