Solaris 8 bites the dust 

Solaris 8 will EOL (Last Ship Date also) on February 16, 2007. Last Order Date will be November 17, 2006. This was originally announced internally on August 15, 2006.

And Sun provide this nice guarantee:

Through the Solaris Application Guarantee program Sun will guarantee, at no cost, that existing applications will RUN without modification on the Solaris 10 Operating System. For customers looking for assistance in accelerating the move to Solaris 10, the Solaris 10 Global Migration Program makes moving from earlier Solaris releases, or from non-Solaris operating systems, even easier. In conjunction with Sun global migration services partners, the program delivers services for a successful migration on time and on budget. Details can be found at: http://sun.com/solaris/move
