    Do I really gain anything as a user by choosing OpenSolaris, especially considering the licensing differences between Sun's offering and the GPL stuff that is out there. Sun is trying to make this into a commercial product right? Is that why they're reinventing the wheel? I feel like GNU/Linux does everything OpenSolaris does already, so why bother?
    In one word: ZFS. It's magical.

    And in another, DTrace. Though I'm not sure if DTrace is available on GNU/Linux (disclaimer: my knowledge is mostly hardware-orientated, rather than programming-orientated.)
