All the repliers agreed on that there is only a Beta release
of Solaris 2.6, and it will be on the market on August this year.
Everybody suggested to upgrade some testing machines, not on
production, and to wait for it to be stabilized, before upgrading
the rest.
Also many of you said that it has a lot of new features and sent
some interesting address to look at them wich I include here:
