    End of support life is 5 years after Sun stops selling an OS,
    though the level of support goes down over time (for instance,
    after 3 years, no new patches are made).

    The end of sales date has not yet happened for Solaris 8, and is not
    likely to happen soon as new hardware releases are still coming out.

    You can make a rough guess based on the information at
    http://wwws.sun.com/software/solaris/fcc/lifecycle.html

    Not from Sun, since as noted above, it happens after the end of sales.
