I couldn't get it. Are updates free and can be downloaded for Solaris 10? Or i must buy support to obtain updates, as in RHEL?

Security updates are free, and can be downloaded (with a free sunsolve account). All non-security updates (except those required to install security updates) are only available to those with a service contract. At least until the next solaris 10 version (u5/u6/etc) comes out, when you can live upgrade your system to get the benefits.

Note that this has changed since the Oracle acquisition of Sun, and the security updates are no longer free. –  alanc Jun 22 '11 at 3:19
