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."

Member since:

Trying out both Linux and Freebsd for my fileserver, but I switched back immediately. I use Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, and Windows on OTHER hardware, but for my fileserver and VM machine, I haven't found anything comparable to OpenSolaris.

....and you do not congest the network with all those pesky security updates....

Since OpenSolaris does not receive updates any more.
