My unfortunate opinion ... Oracle QA is not what it used to be on most every platform including linux also. 

Maybe it is getting better now on solaris ... dunno ... but maybe.

Things started getting pretty shaky coming out from oracle for hpux back in the 9.2 days ...

Guess I am getting old and grumpy but dang hpux and solaris both used to be pretty well shaken out.  They would even install cleanly!

C'est la vie ...

Yes, you may well see 12c on HP-UX. No doubt it, and all subsequent patches, will still take ages to appear compared to other platforms. Even when you get them, you will question the logic of running them on the pile of crap that is HP-UX on Itanium...

Note. My opinion is based on the kit we have here and the extreme bias I have towards Linux. :)
