Here are a couple of Wikipedia pages that discuss Solaris 11 Express



In short, it was a preview release of Solaris 11, prior to the actual GA release.

The reason that I continue to find value in it, is that it (S11Express) not only 
turned out to be a very stable and feature rich release, it (again S11Express) 
was release prior to Oracle pulling all the drivers for pre T and M series 
equipment, meaning, if your hardware ran fine on S10 and/or OpenSolaris, chances 
are that it also ran Solaris 11 Express fine also.

During my time at Verizon, my workstation was a (Sun4u based) SunBlade 2000 
running Solaris 11 Express, and I never had any problems.

You probably are not going to find a download link for Solaris 11 Express at 
Oracle, especially not without a support contract.  However, it is available in 
the darker corners of the Internet.
