Opera Software "In order to ensure a consistently high quality browser across our most popular desktop platforms we have reluctantly decided to drop support for Solaris. This will allow our UNIX development team to focus all of their attention on bringing Opera for Linux and FreeBSD up to final release quality, meaning that a 10.5x release for these platforms will happen as soon as feasibly possible". Opera assure us that this will have no effect on the existing Linux and UNIX ports.

Ditto that, I would also like to know what made supporting Solaris so difficult when they are already supporting Linux, FreeBSD and OS X

The OS X port is different, since it doesn't use X11. The latest Mac version also has a native Cocoa UI.
