'Red Hat Enterprise Linux to Oracle Solaris Porting Guide': OTN White Paper [26799]
Covers Information Useful for Users of Debian, Suse, Ubuntu or Centos as well

Commenting on the recently published Oracle white paper "Red Hat Enterprise Linux to Oracle Solaris Porting Guide," available on OTN, Joerg Moellenkamp describes it as an "interesting document" that covers not only RHEL but contains as well information helpful to users of Debian, Suse, Ubuntu or Centos. He writes that the paper covers what one should consider when you want to port your application (or just script) from RHEL to Oracle Solaris 11. Admins, he says, will find the section that describes where the gnu tools are located and the differences between Solaris native commands and their gnu counterparts.
