What would be LAE for?

Why would Solaris (or any other Unix OS) need a linux compatibility layer? I don't see any reason for that. Open-source software can be compiled natively on Solaris, and precompiled packets for Solaris are often available on the Net (I believe Sun itselfs on request provides a CD with some pre-compiled OSS). Proprietary server software, like Oracle, is supported on Solaris, which still runs a large part of today servers.
So, what am I missing?
