Linux is killing Solaris

Filed under
OS

This just in from the “duh, obvious” department… Linux is killing Solaris.

Search Google for “htop on Solaris.” You’ll probably find the very page you’re reading right now. There were plenty of hits for solaris, top, and htop, but none for solaris and htop together. (Editor’s note: not 5 minutes after publishing this article, Google has this very page as the first hit for ‘htop on solaris.’ See comments.)

We got used to htop’s color-coded bars in a console for our messaging system, and then we deployed to a datacenter on Sun hardware without htop. prstat just isn’t quite the same.

So, what does this have to do with killing Solaris? We couldn’t find even a single person interested in running htop on Solaris (besides us).
