RHEL-to-Solaris Transition Reference

10 Mar '06 - 16:38 by benr

Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a horrible platform, but a lot of people use it and know it. To help ease you into the transition I though a little this-to-that reference might be handy. This is what I came up with offhand, I'll expand it as I think of more. Feel free to post suggestions in the comments.
