Worked a lot with Solaris 9/10 a few years ago, end of Sun days. Amazing systems. Reliant AF. Zones and ZFS were a delight. The SPARC/Solaris/JVM combo worked great in enterprise apps. We had one server running, with some minor upgrades, with zero issues/reboots, for more than 2 years.

Then... it stopped being great, and a x86 Linux machine running the same JVM costed a fraction, and equally performed, if not better. Difficult to justify the licensing and support costs in Oracle days.

Farewell Solaris.
