Solaris advantages
• UNIX, multiplatform, GUI • No viruses • Solaris is free as well as various software
for it • Open source • Solaris installed with the default settings
is absolutely secure
compatibility • Flexible and strong security model
(RBAC) • Containers: secure, balancing load,
and capable to run Linux apps

• Blog (put your thoughts down)
• Promotion, evangelize, advocate (getting tired of talking to the same old people?)
