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."

Linux has already scaled more than well enough over the past ten years, which is why Sun is out of business and no more and Oracle are nailing down the coffin on Solaris.

Solaris is dead. These articles are just the final nails. Oracle is merely trying to work out what money it can salvage and what it will have to do support-wise. Pulling meaningless statements out of your backside about scalability that haven't proved to be true over the past decade won't change that.

If you can't see it by now then I'm sad for you.
