Except for patches unless you want to browse Sun's website regularly to 
download them.

You also get more hardware support on OpenSolaris and support from Sun 
for OpenSolaris but I suppose the latter option is probably better done 
with Solaris 10 + support which includes access to patch management. 
Unless you like the way things are done over here in Linux land which is 
one tool to manage them all and not one tool to install packages and 
another tool to install patches to packages.
