My experience has been that it's about the same as on Solaris 9. With 
the caveat that my Solaris 10 is still a beta version.

This i haven't tried -- maybe it's a bug in Sol 10 ?

It's easier to compile with GCC, Forte needs a lot of patches but 
better performance. i'm also not sure if there is a "Solaris 10" 
version of GCC out yet (there could very well be one, i just don't 
know). From what i understand about Solaris 10, it will ship with GCC
