    With Studio being free, you certaainly have a free compiler.

    That is the unfortunate side-effect of gcc's "embrace and extend"
    attitude towards the "C" programming language.

    Does the free Sun Studio 11 run only on Solaris 10 or does it run on
    earlier versions too?

    If you go to:

    http://www.google.com

    Enter 'sun studio 11' as search terms.

    The first link returned is:

    http://www.sun.com/software/products/studio/index.xml

    Then click on 'System Requirements' (under the Product Home box on left)

    It says it works on Solaris 8, 9, and 10.
