Future for Mathematica on Solaris

I was interested in purchasing a copy of Mathematica for Solaris, but
have seen various things on the net suggesting the Solaris (and to a
lesser extent linux) versions are more buggy than the Windows version.

Looking on the Wolfram web site where one can request a trial

http://www.wolfram.com/products/mathematica/experience/request.cgi

I find one can't request a trail on Solaris from the web site.

So I  contacted Wolfram Research directly by email and asked about a
14-day save-disabled trail. I received a reply in a couple of days,
telling me no trial version of Mathematica exists for Solaris.

Given the Solaris version is more expensive than the windows one,
there are various reports of bugs on Solaris, and one can't even get a
trail version, it does beg the question whether Wolfram Research are
serious about the future of Mathematica on Solaris.
