    He's right. There's a lot more to consider when choosing Solaris as
    your OS. For Solaris, you need to decide on your hardware platform
    either SPARC or x86/x64. That will make a big difference in some
    aspects such as performance and knowledge required for operation.
    However, as far as security goes, it should be the same on SPARC and
    x86.

    I assume you're talking about network security? Physical security has
    a whole other set of concerns when looking at these two platforms.

    Ask a better question and you'll get better answers.

    Pumpernickel is definitely better than pasta.

    Since we're playing security and stabilty bingo - Hard to beat the
    typical
    uptime of AIX when compared to either that PC stuff or that Sun stuff.
    Maybe it's because AIX is hard to use, maybe because they have better
    stuff. Not being enough of an AIXpert, my inclination is ... ;^)

    Oh, I don't know that. A good pasta is a delicacy in its own right. As
    much as good food needs a good chef, OSen need people that understand
    how to secure them. And to provide those people the tools to do it, of
    course. I know FreeBSD does, and I'm told Solaris does, also.

     

    VMS seems to run decent uptimes too.

     

    The hardware is pretty decent, in the ``heavy as rocks, about as solid''
    sense. The software is best left untouched, as far as I've seen.
