That Sun/APPS shop that ditched Solaris for Linux must be insane or have been
"advised" to do so by an hourly consultant.  Can I have their #?  They will
need help soon (next upgrade).

This is all just a trend just like Windows was when everyone was going SC and
then NCA and wanted to put their middle-tiers on Win.

There will be lots of work for the DBAs that stuck to their guns with
proven/stable ONE-VENDOR (os/hardware) platforms when all these shops ditch
their Linux along with the "specialists" that advised them to switch to it in
the first place.
