If I understand it correctly, one can only get security updates by either buy A subscription, or shift to the dev channel.
That's pay, or run unstable, no thanks.


There is a reason why someone marked your post down (I didn't do it btw) - there is no need to resort to blatant lying as to the support policy of the free version of OpenSolaris. OpenSolaris receives free security updates and on occasions free feature updates (if the security updates also bring features as well).

So you don't like OpenSolaris - good for you, but lying doesn't exactly bolster your case given that any credibility you might have had is now shot to pieces.
