The linux compatibility/emulation layer only works on x86..not sparc. This is as per the engineer who gave a Solaris 10 preview that I attended. It makes sense if you consider cpu architecture.

Also, he mentioned that Sun will consider it a BUG if a Linux app runs slower on Solaris x86 emulation than in the native linux environment. That's pretty ballsy.
