I am in A LIMBO HERE..Please help

I am currently running Solaris 10 on my Intel PC x86...It runs perfectly...Recently, I downloaded the Solaris 10 6/06 Release. I heard that release will have more new added security file features and the ZFS feature too.

Then, people say I should really try the Solaris Express x86 Platform, which will have more added hardware support for x86 platforms...

Now, what should I really go for? Im more concerned of actually TWO THINGS HERE...One is MORE SECURITY (Which I hope Trusted Solaris will be added in one of those releases)... and ONE is MORE Hardware suport, THATS ALL FOLKS....

1. The Express version?
2. Solaris 10 6/06 release? (Which I already downloaded but not installed it yet....)
3. Or, stick with the first release of Solaris 10?? (Which is currently running with no issues whatsoever).

Home users should try Solaris Express. The latest build is SXCR snv_43. It has better hardware support and updated software. Original Solaris 10 is of no use now, since the latest is 6/06.

If you want stability and security for your server(s), use Solaris 10 6/06.
