Base subscription for 3 years with Sun only € 830 (1 socket).
After Oracle bought Sun the prices had near tripled. Nice pricing policy, isn't?
I would be not surprised if Oracle planning to cancel further development of Solaris.
But then I like to see Larry in a commercial similiar to this
for confusing (Open-) and Solaris enterprises and community - LOL
First experiences with Solaris 8 on x86 desktop with Pentium III, FSC D1107-B mainboard, 512 MB SDR-RAM, Matrox Millennium G200 AGP 8MB, SCSI, SoundBlaster 16 ISA. Went all fine.
Back in 2008 I registerd my FSC Primergy TX120S1 after successful completion of Sun Hardware Certification Test Suite for Solaris 10. The server was added to the Sun HCL
starting from 5/08. Without support by Sun because the OS didn't support the network chipset in 5/08, not so for OpenSolaris 2008.05.
Looking at the HCL for Solaris 11, there seems to be less systems certfied or maybe nobody wants to certify systems for Oracle. Shame and blessing.
