Solaris Express :-
Almost the same as Solaris Express Community Release, but more tested, therefore slightly behind the cutting edge. For example, the lastest SECR is based on build-33 of OpenSolaris, while SE is based on build-31.

Solaris :-
Sun's commercial OS distribution. Solaris 10 is free of charge, even for commercial use. Service plan can be purchased separately.
Natually, the next generation Solaris release after 10 will be based on OpenSolaris development.



If it is true, why Solaris Express Subscription is $99 for commercial use and Solaris (the Sun's official version) is free for commercial use ?

This don't make sense...
