Solaris

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on April 06, 2005 01:30 AM
You left out what must be the prime example of a 64-bit OS running on the 64-bit AMD hardware. That is Solaris 10.If you install Gnome or KDE and the full suite of GNU tools on Solaris you can't tell it from Linux until you look closly and Solaris is now being open sourced. Sun had a long time to get Solaris working on 64 it machines as it's been on SPARC for years. I'm currently shoping for a new computer. I'm looking for a dual AMD Opteron system and Sun is actully beating others on price so Solaris is not unreasonable.
