I would be very interested in anyone's recollections of how Solaris 
eventually turned out performance-wise, say version 9+, compared to 
other operating systems. SunOS, Linux, AIX, etc.

I find it's about equal, and even exceeds Linux in terms of it's NUMA 
support and multi-processor support. I need to move some systems away 
from Solaris and off to Linux, and I find it's NUMA support lacking in 
certain ways.
