oh right. FreeBSD would have better hardware support I guess. But that is just a guess.

Solaris could be quite picky, but it's the type of enterprise OS you buy hardware for knowing you're going to install Solaris to start with. IIRC Open Solaris did have better hardware support than pure Solaris, so the same would be true for OI as well. But as to whether they're on a par or better than FreeBSD, I doubt it.

Yeah, OI is pretty much done for. Their lead developer called it quits a week or so ago, so future hardware is going to be hit or miss.

Part of me wants to say "that's a great shame", but quite frankly, I was never all that impressed with it anyway.

Well once you said Visualisation Server 2012 editions just only goes to 2 editions for that if you really to put the best features of the new Hyper-V are Standard and Datacenter. The only difference noted at this moment is the licensing model and the virtualization rights with the Standard having 2 VMs per license and the Data enter with unlimited. That is all on that side the other editions have no Hyper-V unless you using the free Hyper-V or some other 3rd party vendor and some other things that may not be usable in your case.
