It may seem very similar to Ubuntu because the desktop environment is gnome based and they have a lot of the same command line utilities however they are very different in some ways. If you want to learn system administration I would recommend downloading Solaris 10 because you will be more likely to see it in a production environment and it is free to download from Sun.

As the next Solaris release is expected to be based on OpenSolaris, it is not a bad idea to experiment with it too.
OpenSolaris is also much more convenient to install and use on PCs, especially laptops.

Why ? They are no more distributed or even supported anyway.
