Since Solaris is now free, why aren't people using it in-place of various linux distros?
Is *nix generally thought of as being *better* than Solaris 10?
No, it's not better, just more popular. BSD has also been available for a very long time, and is arguably a better *nix (BTW, that term means "Unix variant" not "Linux variant"), but Linux is still more popular.
