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."

Solaris is the #1 platform used by Oracle customers.

Yes, in the real world large organizations actually pay for software. And reliability, stability, and support contracts are actually the deciding factors for their purchasing decisions.
