I work for the US government and this is something that I have been asked
I do not work for the NSA :P ... Solaris has been used to host this
divisions applications for decades so that probably won't be changing
anytime soon, although, I did notice some newer teams moving to RHEL.
Anyways, if you can't/won't do it... that's fine haha... I'm just hoping
somebody else can. I'll probably bang my head against it for another week
before I give up in any case.
I still believe in you Ernie & anyone else trying!
I'll look into that OpenIndiana thread in a bit Oscar, thanks!
