    According to Oracle itself you can expect Solaris 11.5 in 2019 and Solaris would be supported at least to 2034. It lives until big enterprises are willing to pay for it's support.

    Oracle even seems to do some actual work on it, 11.4 for example brought pf firewall ported over from OpenBSD. Made work with zones as well.

    But what if I do benchmarks with phoronix test suite and publish them here in forum? I live in a country where this clause won't stand in court.

    Cannot update to it due to certificate issue, and looks like I'm not the only one in that case...

    Kebabbert is no more. He was basing on invalid benchmarks: SAP results are not comparable.

    Benchmark against Oracle Linux. Guaranteed victory.

    But doesn't that mean you can ask them to let you benchmark the OS?
