I think you misread the article.  Trusted Solaris, as a standalone product tied to specific architectures, is being 
phased out.

Sun is now offering those Trusted OS features as Extentions to the general SunOS.  This allows the feature to plug into 
additional architectures.  Think of SELinux, in how it is a plugin to the standard Linux kernel... and not a seperate 
Linux distribution.

Support for the old Trusted Solaris will continue for eight years.. etc etc, i'm basically rewriting the article.

Regards,
