Solaris 10 need more open source tools

Question was ask, solaris has many new features and include tools like “D-trace”, “Zone”, “ZFS” etc, why user not adopt solaris 10 in ther environment?
IMHO, the one area that Solaris 10 need to improve is the adoption of the opensource tools.
tools like, gcc, php, python, wget, postresql, expect, vim, top, tcpdump. mysql .
most tools are in solaris companion CD (execpt postresql) but there are not the most recent version and CCD does not track the opensource in the same speed as linux.
a few word on postresql, postresql become the backend of many SUN’s SW e.g. Sun Control station, N1SM, N1 Grid SPS. But the postresql is not yet part of the Solaris or Solaris CCD
There is version 8 of postresql at site, but most SW still using the v7 SW:-(
After this initial posting, I did register in opensolaris.og site and find out hat there is community: GNU solaris. Hopefully we will see more GNU tools be ported to Solaris

  1. OpenSolaris Nevada Build 34 for x86 has PostreSQL, Realplayer, GCC, Bash, and several other GNU utilities, such as GZIP, Python, Perl, and Apache 1.x/2.x. This is not an official “stable” build of Solaris, but as you now know, it’s where all of Sun’s development goes from here on out for the most part. Every build brings more tools to Solaris, just keep posted.
