Solaris to Linux Migration: A Guide for System Administrators

In 1991 Linus Torvalds, back then a university student of computer science at the University of Helsinki, sent a historic post to the MINIX1 news group announcing that he was working on a new free operating system and was interested in getting feedback about features that should be included in Linux. A few weeks later, Linux version 0.01 was released on the Internet, and its development became a shared effort as developers downloaded code, tested it, tweaked it, and sent it back to Linus, who then integrated them into his project.

Although Linux itself was free, commercial vendors moved in soon in order to make money by gathering and compiling software and thus creating a package easy to install and distribute, more like the other, more familiar commercial operating systems. Today, Linux has been ported to many other platforms, from hand-held devices to mainframes. It is the fastest growing OS in the server market and is used in enterprise as well as single-purpose server installations. The open nature of its development process has led to rapid and frequent additions of features and technologies. Added support for clustering, for example, has enabled highly available and scalable solutions using Linux. Linux’s roots in the UNIX operating system philosophy make it stable, reliable, and expandable, while at the same time, familiar to experienced UNIX users and administrators.
