Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Sun Microsystems is set to license OpenSolaris under the upcoming GNU GPLv3 in addition to the existing Common Development and Distribution License, sources close to the company have told eWEEK. "The next version of Solaris will include things like GNU Userland, which is already being attempted with OpenSolaris, while open-source solutions from other communities for things like package management also look very promising. Dual-licensing OpenSolaris with GPLv3 could make this even easier," said a source who declined to be named.

The question is if ZFS and Dtrace will be released under GPL v2 or v3 too.

This would be great, as currently ZFS nor Dtrace cannot be integrated in GPL OS projects (beside using user-land fuse...).
