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.
