The Solaris OS was carefully designed as a product, Linux is a
combination of technollogies carefully developed to interact with
eachother but created in independent projects. Both of them a very
well made, but the way how all the parts within Solaris relate to
eachother is more consistent.

Solaris and linux are like 2 different languages, both ritch on their
own way, why shoulnt we write phylosopy in German?
