There is no Linux monopol. It just happens that other *nixes have failed
to create a similarly-sized software ecosystem, and as a result have to
support the Linux format to benefit a little from Linux network effects.

Should SUN manage to push a fantastically attractive software stack
Solaris-side, you'd see Solaris binary support sprout in other *nixes
overnight. Right now it's paying for years of serverside-only focus and
userspace under-investment.
