Yes make sure you read the fine print of what is covered by Solaris x86
at 250.00.. it is not as simple and clean as a price difference does.
But then again.. it was never really fair to compare a 49.99
installation support only boxed set to a 250.00 commercial support
solaris in the first place.. but many linux heads did so.
