upgrade -> Solaris9 to Solaris10 -> is it worth it?
Posted on 2007-03-28
We have 2 Sunfire 480 machines running Solaris 9. I have become, by default, the system admin for these machines and have grown fond of them.
My company aquired another company who thinks these computers are "boatanchors" and they don't want to support them. They currently are using Linux servers and workstations.
As it turns out, the next CAD software upgrade will not support Solaris9, but will support Solaris10.
Is the cost and hassles of upgrading to Solaris10 worth the trouble?
Or should I cut these "boatanchors" lines and let them go?
I'm also disipointed in Sun's web site. Seems you need to pay to view FAQ and other help information. What a crock, since the DST patch killed our Exceed connection.
