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."

2009.06 (build 101b I believe) is the last RELEASE... However, there have been plenty of updates. They are on build 134 (http://genunix.org/). Sure, the Oracle merger has probably dampened the releases so far, but that's not to say there aren't any updates.

Regardless, I'm running build 118 and has been nothing but solid. Updates to VirtualBox come every now and then, but everything else has been running without hiccup.
