I tend to agree with the sentiment, tftv256. Linux
is not a toy OS
, though. It is a very functional and stable unix-like operating system
I agree with the sentiment, however because having worked with Solaris now for quite some time, I've come to the conclusion that Solaris and Linux are not even in the same league (maybe "not even the same fucking sport" :). My requirement for an enterprise level operating system means linux is not even a consideration.
It's easy for IT Professionals to shitcan Linux, and you know what the funny thing is?
They do it for the same reason Linux users shitcan Windows users.
Yep, you got it. They believe that their operating sytem of choice has more of that je ne sais quoi. They pity those fools who have yet to reach OS nirvana.
Simple, pure personal preference. You wouldn't run Solaris on your PC at home (although you certainly can) unless you were being obtuse or wanted bragging rights. And yes, that's an opinion to which I am sure there are many counter-opinions.
