   I had a building full of suits breathing down my neck to move our 
bread-and-butter, crash-free SunOS4 systems to Solaris in the 2.3 days.

   My words may be harsh, but the running in short spurts between 
crashes wasn't an exaggeration.  There were tremendous memory leaks in 
the C library, and the OS blew itself to pieces when it ran out of swap 
space.  These two things make for a very bad combination.

   And that's not saying anything about the horrendous performance 

   I'm really, really glad they got their shit together.  I've got four 
machines running Solaris-8 and two running -9...that stuff is just 
plain *nice*!
