It seems to me that Oracle are commited to Solaris for their SPARC offerings and OEL for x86. I agree that their x86 roadmap is hazy at best but what I struggle with is the fact that their Exadata offering uses x86 and not SPARC. Also other hardware vendors (IBM, HP etc...) don't really offer full support for OEL which makes it even more problematic.
"It will be interesting to see if Oracle can get Solaris 11 on a wide selection of x86-based servers, too."
I struggle to understand why Oracle would really want to push this on x86 if their preferred option is OVM. I would be worried about deploying Solaris on x86 as I see no commitment from Oracle on this combination over the long term.
a) Why would I want to buy a product without any intrinsic re-sale value so for me it gotta be physical media.
b) The majority of the CDs I buy are from marketplace sellers though Amazon, Ebay etc... so in most cases are second hand. It would be interesting to see how the second hand market has faired over the last 5 years.
