There is an X86 version of Sun Microsystem's Solaris Operating System.

Define 'Version'

If you mean any flavor then you have LOTS of choices - Linux, Free BSD, etc. You can download any of them (which will take a LONG time), pay for a CD (typicaly $5.00) direct from the vendor, or (my choice) go to a discount bookstore (such as Borders Outlet), buy and install an older version then just download the upgrade.

You have quite a few choices. Check out I have used a couple versions of Linux (not UNIX, but close), but my favorite is FreeBSD (which is based on the BSD4.4 UNIX). Cheapbytes has cd's for $5 for many versions of linux and BSD.
