\*sigh\* Unix dead, news at 11

Since Gartner's silly pronouncement the pundits are in play. The silliest bit I've seen yet is this gem: litigious process than, say, porting from Solaris to AIX. As if porting from one Standards compliant (and Unix certified) system to another would require any litigation. And this guy thinks he's defending Unix against Linux.

Commuting between Linux and Solaris?

Often I find myself switching back and forth between systems, for a variety of reasons. While one certainly could use blastwave (or equivalent) to equip the systems identically, there's a couple of things which work just fine with some simple "mapping".

For example, if I've assigned myself the "Primary Administrator" role in my Solaris installation, there's no need for sudo. But it gets tiresome to retrain my fingers sometimes, so

alias sudo="pfexec"

does the trick. Similarly for prstat (alias to top).
