An Unix-based operating environment developed by Sun Microsystems. Originally developed to run on Sun’s SPARC workstations, Solaris now runs on many workstations from other vendors.
Solaris includes the SunOS operating system and a windowing system (either OpenWindows or CDE). Solaris currently supports multithreading, symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), integrated TCP/IP networking, and centralized network administration. A Wabi emulator is available to run Windows applications.
