Hi Linux basher. BTW, I don't remember anybody holding up Linux like 
it's the holy grail. They were holding Ubuntu up like it's the holy 
grail. FYI, there are plenty of Linux sysadmins that despise Ubuntu just 
as much as you despise Linux.

ZFS an 'enterprise grade' feature now is it? So what are you going to do 
when Oracle pushes out btrfs for Linux with the self same functionality 
that ZFS has and maybe more? Jump ship? The rumour mills have this story 
about Oracle doing a dtrace for Linux. Sounds fun?

You have missed the point of those posters 'holding up Ubuntu like it is 
the holy grail'. They would like to see OpenIndiana get more exposure 
and hopefully attract the attention of more developers to keep it from 
dying. They have good intentions. Only problem is that most people who 
do use OpenIndiana, including idiots like me (thanks Garrett), use it 
for server purposes and not general desktop use like Ubuntu.
