We don't know what is going inside Solaris Express, since it is closed
It could do any kind of weird things inside, Solaris (Express) user
could not ever know about.

And that is not a presumption, that is a fact with any closed source OS.
You can Believe that Oracle is not _sniffing inside_ your organization
and you do not.

Only way you can be sure is when you use OS that is Open Source.
Everything closed makes very much reasonable to be paranoid.
