U8 is now long past due date (like me)... HAHAHAHA!!

At work, we are likely
not renewing our Solaris support contracts after the next time round, as by
then our plan for the Unix we have is to be 95%+ Linux and in a year's time,
we are SUPPOSED to be off Solaris for nearly all things except some very
specific legacy applications but you know how THAT goes? 

We used to have
over 250 Solaris boxes under support and are now down to about 15.

This is really weird.
