I can tell you when Solaris 10 first came out, they were not releasing Patch Clusters every two weeks. I remember looking for them, and the first Patch Cluster took MONTHS to be released. Their push with Solaris 10 was using SMPATCH and UPDATEMANAGER for updates. The problem was these were not production ready and caused problems. Second the patch/package system didn't work well with Solaris 10 with ZONES running.

But it looks like your right now in days, Solaris 10 patch clusters seem to be updated every two weeks. But this was not always the case (like you said have been the case for years, not true).
