As far as Solaris goes, i have been looking around for a good upgrade

OpenIndianaHipster. Any thoughts about that?

If you liked Solaris then any of the Illumos derivatives are the
continuation of the heritage :) I've heard good things about OmniOS too.

Certainly they're all a lot easier to get current opensource apps for than
Solaris ( https://pkgsrc.joyent.com/install-on-illumos/ )!

If your playing with Linux I'd suggest starting with Ubuntu to have
something which should install and get running quickly, then look at other
distributions later.
