Oracle and SUN Today Oracle released its latest version of Solaris technology, the Oracle Solaris 11 Express 2010.11 release. It includes a large number of new features not found in either Oracle Solaris 10 or previous OpenSolaris releases including ZFS encryption and deduplication, network-based packaging and provisioning systems, network virtualization, optimized I/O for NUMA platforms and optimized platform support including support for Intel's latest Nehalem and SPARC T3. In addition, Oracle Solaris 10 support is available from within a container/zone so migration of existing systems is greatly simplified. The release is available under a variety of licenses including a supported commercial license on a wide variety of x86 and SPARC platforms.

"Again, Solaris 11 is CHEAPER than Linux.

Or to say it more correctly:
The cheapest Solaris 11 license is cheaper than the most expensive Linux license.
Read here about Solaris vs RedHat pricing

And you will see how expensive Linux can be, and Solaris is cheaper.
