Solaris shops are going to find Zones useful.  Linux shops are going to find
Xen useful. However, I severely doubt that Zones are going to attract any Linux
shops, or that Xen will be enough to make Solaris shops convert.

And the shops that are so totally Java/PHP/Perl/whatever that it doesn't matter
if they're on Solaris or Linux will end up choosing whatever hosting solution
costs them the least per month...
