Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Solaris kernel has binary kernel module compatibility all the way back to version 2.6, which sounds like "don't move" stability. But there is still good engineering and new stuff going on in that kernel. This isn't a comment to say the Linux system is bad, but only to point out the smart engineering that went into Solaris, too.
