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.

Yes, but like everything there is a tradeoff, DTrace probes can't use full flow control statements such as loops etc. SystemTap does offer some saftey guarantees as well; check out the saftey section in the comparison table:

sorry but that chart is not accurate, I made numerous attempts at correcting it but they chose to ignore it here is a corrected chart along with links to threads where this was discussed.
