Oracle is making it pretty clear that Solaris is only for
Solaris hardware and they are changing the support/price

Ideally, we'd like to run Solaris on commodity x86 boxes rather 
than the increasingly expensive thumper boxes.

For whatever reason Oracle is pricing themselves out of the 
market wrt to generic hardware.
