• For convenience in this talk:
Linux = an operating system distribution which uses the Linux kernel.
Solaris = a distribution from the family of operating systems whose
kernel code originated from Sun Solaris.
SmartOS = a Solaris-family distribution developed by Joyent, based on
the illumos kernel, which was based on the OpenSolaris kernel, which
was based on the Solaris kernel
System = everything you get when you pick a Linux or Solaris
distribution: the kernel, libraries, tools, and package repos
• Opinions in this presentation are my own, and I do not
represent Oracle Solaris. I'll actually be talking about SmartOS.
