Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

Solaris is as different to Linux as Windows is different to BSD

I use Solaris since v8 came out. In general it's not that hard to move between the Linux and Solaris, certainly not as hard as moving from Linux to default AIX. And if you use Nexenta then it's really not that different.

But then there's hardware configuration, firewall, zones and other lower level stuff that is massively different.
