Depends, on how you get on it. But for solaris the h/ware specs are diffrent. Anyway Solaris are capable for doing many things too same like other unix variants. All depends on how we get used to it thats it.. you will fly with it as soon as you familiar..

I suggest sticking with RedHat, it has a better user interface, and is much more user friendly. Remeber- Linux is just another flavour of unix (i.e.: OS X, BSD, etc...). The kernel for Linux was just made by Mr. Torvalds, who currently heads the largest Linux core development team, Open Source, of course.
