Good for design wins for marketing droids selling to corporates --- "look, your crappy code compiles and runs (most of the time)".
Crap for anyone who actually wants bugs to get fixed.
Changes in glibc development

The x86 architecture is just the same (and so are others like IA64).

Solaris has not monopoly on "your bugware just works most of the time". Some bugware dies badly on Solaris but works on Linux and other systems where freshly allocated memory is all 0 most of the time.
What I really don't like in glibc is implementing a pipe2 function returning ENOSYS, if is not implemented, instead of implementing it using pipe(2) and fcntl(2), No doubt someone would call this is a feature but I can't work up enough enthusiasm for it to do so.
