Look at the release number:

Release = 5.10

The "5" designates the major release - System 5. The number after the decimal point is the version - 10 in your case. I'm using version 9 and it reads like this when executing the uname -a command:

SunOS doomsday 5.9 Generic_118559-39 i86pc i386 i86pc

The release number 5.9 is listed after the server name: doomsday

>uname -r
5.5.1
>cat /etc/release

I think the cat command is a less confusing option. The Solaris system being run here is Version 2 (it is quite old). However the response to the uname command is 5.5.1. On the face of it the uname command suggests it is version 5 (which is incorrect - it is version 2)
