Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Oracle today announced Oracle Solaris 11.1, delivering over 300 new performance and feature enhancements to the Oracle Solaris 11 product family." This stuff goes way over my head.

Engineering those systems is not free, it costs money. The market size for said systems is not large enough for Oracle to bother, since the number of orders would likely not offset the production/design costs. Oracle is in business in order to make money, and they seem to be exceedingly good at it.

Sun used to have them.

At least in the US, you could get Toshiba laptops with Solaris pre-installed.

I remember seeing them on the online shop.

And Sun was so successful at making money... that they got swallowed up by Oracle. You just proved the parent's point quite handily :-)
