Unless I can use Dtrace on standard Linux or Win32 (god help us) then 
Dtrace is pretty much irrelevant. Solaris is easily our least deployed 
platform. Why are we focusing so much on a Sun technology?

Yes I know that it runs on FreeBSD (if is is sparc). Yes I know it will 
be included in Leopard (which is not out yet).
