Larry's goal is to sell.

Having high TPC benchmarks helps sell big iron databases which results in lots of income. High TPC ratings requires lots & lots of OS tuning (read corporate costs) which can be offset by by more sales of tweaked Solaris. Expending lots of time polishing OpenSolaris results in little to no return, so why bother?

Larry can be called a lot of things, but "altruistic" isn't one of them.
