comment Does Solaris/Illumos have a daemon for at jobs, or manage internally?
BTW. Interestingly Solaris seems to be moving away from cron although it will possibly continue to exist in Solaris for the next 20 years or so: In Solaris 11.3 you can now use SMF for periodic jobs (of course you can also still use cron) and I suspect it is only a matter of time before one-time jobs can be handled by SMF as well.

comment Create tar file on Solaris and untar the file on Linux is it right?
Hmm. It doesn't matter much if GNU tar isn't doing things "by the book" (the book being POSIX). If everyone is using GNU tar - even if GNU tar is painting outside the lines - then I'm of the impression that things will always work. GNU tar is always compatible with self, right?

comment Practical difference between SPARC vs x86
Another point: Oracle uses a great deal of time putting "software in silicon", i.e. they migrate operations from their db software into the SPARC chip. The SPARC boxes have always been good at I/O (a bit like what mainframes are good at too) and if you couple that with the "software in silicon" trend it means you can get superior db performance on a SPARC box compared to a X86 box.

comment Solaris 11 / OpenSolaris - stop processes from listening?
+1. To clarify: What is new in Solaris 11 is the -u argument on netstat.
