I support two systems running Solaris 2.6.  These systems cannot be
upgraded to Solaris 7 or later.  They cannot be easily replaced by
newer systems.  I resent Sun attempting to use the stupidity of our
government (which is insulting enough) as a form of punishment.

Almost certainly there exist installations where the number of systems
stuck at Solaris 2.6 or 7 are far greater than two.
