I don't know anything about Jails.

Zones are nice.  Did they fix the issue about moving them from one  
machine to another?

I find that there are times it isn't worth fighting with putting some  
applications on Solaris.  Using a VM on a linux PC can make setting  
up those linux applications easier.

Then there is the windows crap.  You certainly can't run that in a zone.
