    I wonder what the performance loss is.

    Oh, wait. Not allowed to test that.

      Oracle is such a weird company changing OpenSolaris to Solaris and stopped making it available as open source. That makes absolutely no business sense at all, and it just made Solaris much less attractive. They don't seem interested in investing in it either, so its just something which seems deprecated that they keep, I guess for existing customers.

      Weird company, weird business decisions. I think they should just go back to having Solaris be open source again and/or shut it down and push for migration to Oracle Linux.

          They make a ton of cash by not investing anything and raising prices on old customers that are vendor-locked and can't jump ship.

          Oracle has a lot of experience in doing this.

            "retribution" against whom, this time? Solaris devs managed to "insult" systemd somehow? honestly curious here.

              Stop living in the past.

              You need to understand that Solaris is a wholly proprietary product of Oracle since a decade or so. Also need to understand that "Solaris devs" don't exist anymore (also for a long time). There is a skeleton crew at best, it's on life support only, no development has taken place since a long time. Most former "solaris devs" have a different job now as they were fired.

              It happens to be that Oracle decided to ban any benchmarking of their wholly proprietary product Solaris, which very heavily hints at the fact that it IS slow and they KNOW it.

              Therefore, "Slowlaris" statement applies, and being Solaris a wholly proprietary product of Oracle, that's an offence towards Oracle, and anyone reacting to that is in fact defending Oracle.

                Teach your grandmother to suck balls. And take your own advice, stop living in the past. Thus my "retribution"-comment. You are always so butthurt when someone dares criticize systemd even in the slightest and first man to throw shit in BSD threads recently (where you once said it's "retribution for BSD-user's past deeds"). So, "stop living in the past". will ya.

                wholly proprietary product blablabla.. you have that same shit produced over Illumos distros, so it's pathetic excuse. Man up. Like kindergarden with your silly hatreds.

                  Long since dead. I'm not a child since many decades

                  I'm not sure you understood the meaning, as I'm not seeing how it applies to this situation.

                  Not true, I usually react when someone posts complete bs, and systemd threads usually get people posting complete bs. I leave alone people posting normal criticism or fair disagreement with something.

                  and first man to throw shit in BSD threads recently (where you once said it's "retribution for BSD-user's past deeds").
                  Oh you mean this comment? https://www.phoronix.com/forums/foru...21#post1160321

                  That's what you get for being a child, adults step down and beat you with their superior experience at "being a child".

                  Do you dare say you and others that claim to be using BSD aren't the first to post the same insane bullshit that is just blatantly false over and over and over in systemd threads? Compared to that, the little "but it does not have systemd even if it ends with d" joke is some innocent lighthearted fun, maybe offtopic, but it's not shitting on NetBSD.

                  you have that same shit produced over Illumos distros, so it's pathetic excuse.
                  Not really. I don't shit on illumos distros, I just point out issues, like with all my more serious posts.
