Solaris resurgent in European financial community

For those who think Solaris is dead and "Linux" will take over the world, a recent survey by Forrester Research (NOT paid for by Sun) points out that Solaris is one of the top three "strategic" OS platforms. This shows the value of communities and openness in the software space.  More about this at Jonathan Schwartz blog.

Some interesting quotes include:

Solaris is back on the winner's podium. Sun Solaris has regained its "historical significance" in European financial services.

Linux has lost traction.

Pure J2EE is still strategically very important.
