ISV Support for Solaris
TPM reports in Sun Asks ISVs Why They Love Solaris about a recent study about the ISV support of Solaris. Interesting read. But the last sentence is the best:
And for those ISVs who watched as Sun let other platform vendors eat its lunch from 2001 through 2004, eroding server market share and bringing Solaris to the brink of market irrelevance, the run from 2005 through 2007 must have given Solaris ISVs the sense that Sun was back in the game and they could rely on Solaris as a business once again as much as customers have always relied on Solaris as a rock-solid operating system.
