Setting up enterprise groupware is usually associated with huge costs, both in money and staffing, and immense complexity, requiring professionals to keep everything running smoothly. The benefits are worth the costs, though, even for smaller organizations. If done correctly, your staff will be up-to-date and able to quickly and easily share essential information. With Open-Xchange Server, you can get those benefits from an open source application.

Apple Computer Inc. extended the courtesy of meeting with me one day after my column on the closing of the OS X x86 kernel source code was published online.

Open source middleware juggernaut JBoss, now part of Linux distributor Red Hat, is hosting its second annual--and perhaps final--JBoss World customer and partner event in Las Vegas, coinciding with the 10-millionth download of its JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite (JEMS). Having secured its position in the middleware space and been acquired by financially secure Red Hat, now JBoss is pumped to move out from the middle into the systems management space and to establish, through the Seam project, itself as the framework for Web 2.0 applications.

This is not a scientific comparison per se but more of an attempt to formulate the framework for comparison that might be used by future authors. Actually the fact that a particular person is interested in the theme to the extent that he/she wrote such a paper is a strong argument against his/her depth of knowledge in one or both OSes that he/she tries to compare ;-).
Author conclusion is as follows:
"All-in-all Solaris is a powerful, stable, conformant-to-standards OS that can run many open source applications as well as Linux, and some (mainly multithreaded applications) better than Linux. Like in the cases of Red Hat and Suse, the cost of support is extra, but it is more reasonably priced. Security patches are free which makes Solaris similar to Windows."
