If I wanted a non-Linux I'd use a BSD (in fact I probably will install one on my work machine, fairly soon). FreeBSD has both ZFS and Dtrace. Dragonfly BSD has a very impressive filesystem of its own, Hammer. Both have active and enthusiastic communities behind them. Meanwhile, Linux, whatever its faults, is rock solid and runs for months without a reboot (it would be years, but I upgrade to the newest distro now and then) -- and supports pretty much all the hardware out there. Why would I want to try OpenIndiana or any other variety of Solaris? The (ex-)OpenSolaris folks should try to answer that question first, before turning on members of their own community.
