I started using linux around 2000 in highschool, and can remember when it was much worse off than Solaris was now w.r.t. desktop/laptop support. Solaris is improving just as quickly if not more so in these regards, though certainly it is true that linux development eased some of the stepping stones (such as Nvidia drivers and certain driver models).

But if Solaris doesn't work or you don't need it or care about its additional features, why not go linux? That's fine, too. Same could be said for Linux vs Windows or anything really.
