  • When Sun moved from SunOS 4.x to Solaris, they moved from BSD to SysV Unix and folded in some of the old BSD stuff for backward compatibility and familiarity.

    If you've always been on a BSD Unix, you have the advantage of living with a Unix who's sys admin structure has been relatively stable.

    If you've always been on Linux, you have the advantage of a sys admin structure that is user-driven: the community has taken what makes sense and kept it.

    But Solaris (SunOS) has had a long history before Linux and the Open/Free/NetBSDs were popular. Consequently the sys admin structure is somewhat mangled (like how code become spaghetti over the years) and has a slight Microsoft feel (I mean: "imposed upon you").

    The best Solaris sys admins are focused on primarily administrating Solaris.
