Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Hot on the heals of Oracle's revamp of Solaris support, the licensing agreement for free downloads of Solaris 10 have changed. Here is the bit in question: "...Please remember, your right to use Solaris acquired as a download is limited to a trial of 90 days, unless you acquire a service contract for the downloaded Software". So far the OpenSolaris license has not changed, it's still CDDL."

ya, thats their plan. the reality of it is that its not a big deal, the tech geek users were already using open solaris on not solaris 10. ultimatly oracle will do good by solaris, but they have a tough road ahead of them making all of sun's projects work within a healthy business model creating structure for the development of sun's software.
