[PLUG] Solaris 8 or Linux on Sparc?

I have a client who has solaris 7 on sparc Ultra5's. The question came
up as to moving them to linux, solaris 8 or leaving as solaris 7. Uses
are for DNS and NIS(+). I question whether NIS+ is available on linux (I
recall that it wasn't a fewyears back - but this may have changed), if
we move to solaris 8 what the licensing cost is, and what disadvantage
there is to staying with solaris 7 (not current - patches, support
lifespan, etc). 

I'm sure I can find this information on the net, but any insight is
