    I tried the OpenSolaris for Intel hardware. Didn't much care for it. CentOS/Fedora are more to my liking for Linux, and FreeBSD for Unix.

    Here is a link to the Solaris 10 for x86 platform:

    Here is the Open Solaris site:

    All things are possible, only believe.

    well, i have OpenSolaris too, it isn't supported on the hardware i have icon_sad.gif . may be i should wait for PPC version.

    My idea is to get Sun certification..... so better get hands on Sun Solaris.

    I've used Solaris 10 on x86 hardware successfully. I had the same thought, wanted to get SCSA certified. Solaris can be. . . err. . . "finicky", to say the least.

    I used VMWare to run Solaris x86 and it worked great!

    you mean x86 hardware support or the OS itself ?.

    isn't that expensive ?. did anyone use freeware virtualisation apps(qemu, virtual PC, etc..) ?.

    I paid $$ for the version 4. Now version 5 is out and they don't even have an upgrade for it. You have to pay full money again.

    I dont' endorse illegal activity, but I should just use some assembly tool to skip the regstration check.
