You've made infantile assumptions from the point of view of someone who's never left the state in which he was raised.
Incorrect. I was born in Hammond, IN and spent the first seven years of my life in Calumet City, IL. When my mom died, I went to live in Witchataw, KS. Six months later, they moved to Meadsville, MS. From there I went to the Church of God Home for Children in Sevierville TN and finally arrived in the heart of Dixie where they moved seven times in two years in a thirty mile radius. That isn't all the moving that they did, those were just the ones that we counted. I've been in Huntsville for going on five years.

During my time in Alabama, I have driven to Colorado twice to go skiing. I have visited Dad's college buddies in Texas and gone to two two-week-long workshops in Indianapolis. I have been to Boston, New York City (and got to stand on top of the World Trade Center before it collapsed) and traveled to DC in my youth. I've been to Atlanta several times and went to the Aquarium of the Worlds in Biloxi. I frequently haunt Chattanooga when I have the time and money. I have been on a mission trip to Romania and spent three days in Vienna, which, if you ever get the chance, you should take the wife in a heartbeat. When I went to Nicaragua, after forming many happy memories in Porta Barrios, I saw the Mayan ruins in Tikal and enjoyed a brief stay in Antigua. In short, sir, I have left the States in which I was raised several times and plan to do so again and again and again. But like the song says, "My home's in Alabama, no matter where I lay my head. Southern born and Southern bred."

Simply put, whenever you sit, your ass is on a tack and itches to be somewhere you are not. Go travel the world again.

Too bad you've recently stated that you think Solaris sucks. I'm sorry, what did you base that statement on again?

In short, you suck

"I was born in Hammond, IN"

I appreciate your desire to no longer be a Yankee carpet bagger!!!

And I quote, "No, I don't have any direct experience with Solaris."

I never said that Solaris sucked. I said I don't understand what its purpose is.

Why does a proprietary system run only on propriety hardware? unparalleled uptime & support.

Now we're getting somewhere. What sets Solaris apart from say Mac OS X or VAC-based OSes/architectures?

Do your own research. Though you won't get far as stated, so let me help you out: VAX. OSX Server is nothing short of horrific. Look it up.

So let me get this straight: your strongest argument for Solaris is "Look it up." Sounds like a piece of shit to me if you, a renowned Solaris Admin can't explain why your OS of choice is so great. Maybe this is just a way for you to maintain job security because if people knew that your OS could be explained in one sentance, you wouldn't have a job.
