[TUHS] Oracle euthanizes Solaris 12, expunging it from roadmap

I'm a bit puzzled, but then I only ever worked with some version of
Ultrix and an AT&T flavour of UNIX in Philips, SCO 3.2V4.2 (OpenServer
3ish), DEC Digital UNIX, Tru64, HP-UX 1123/11.31 and only ever used
"mkdir -p".

Some differences in the various versions are easily solved in scripts,
like shown below. Not the best of examples, but easy. Getting it to
work on a linux flavour wouldn't be too difficult :-)

OS_TYPE=`uname -n`
case "${OS_TYPE}" in
	"OSF1")
		PATH=".:/etc:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/xyz/shell:/xyz/appl/unix/bin:/xyz/utils:"
		TZ="THA-7"
		;;
	"HP-UX")
		PATH=".:/etc:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/contrib/bin:/xyz/field/scripts:/xyz/shell:/xyz/appl/unix/bin:/xyz/utils:"
		TZ="TST-7"
		;;
	*)
		echo "${OS_TYPE} unknown, exit"
		exit 1
		;;
esac
