Solaris reviews in Phoronix

Michael Larabel of Phoronix posted two detailed Solaris reviews this week.

In the first review, he talks about his Solaris Express Community Edition Build 66 installation experience and the fact that it’s easier to install than Solaris 10 and offers improved x86/x64 hardware support.

In a second review, Michael describes a graphics comparison between Linux and Solaris using NVIDIA proprietary drivers concluding, “the Solaris driver code is very similar to the Linux, Windows, and FreeBSD drivers with the exception of the OS-specific bits, and this advantage is definitely able to shine through when talking about the performance benefits for alternative operating systems.”
