It wouldn't surprise me if Solaris was more scalable for gazillion
dollar SMP machines with a huge number of cores. That was one of the
reason as I recall why Solaris had a reputation of being slow; being
scalable to big (and much more profitable) servers was considered more
important than the smaller systems that were probably more numerous
(but not nearly as profitable).
