Also, the concerns about Solaris were related to poor performance under
Solaris 8 on a multi-Sparc platform. Anybody got any more recent
information that might apply to Solaris 10 or to an Opteron platform?

To make it short: Solaris is not slow by design. The *Sparc*-based hardware is fu*cking slow compared to decent PC-based systems. Solaris on i386 hardware is not slower or faster than compared to Linux. I made some tests lately with Plone under Solaris on a PC and the benchmarks (basically using ab) were more or less the same as with a comparable PC system (+/- 10%). So why would one use Solaris? Only when you have the need for reliable hardware. Sparc-based hardware is still at least 10 times more stable then a cheap PC system ... everything has its price.
