The announcement "demonstrates Oracle's commitment to openness," company co-president Charles Phillips said in a statement. In addition, Solaris is simply in demand for use on multiple x86 server platforms, he added.

Not exactly sure how this demonstrates a commitment to openness. All I think this demonstrates is that Oracle sees the chance to sell more support contracts, which doesn't need demonstrating to believe.
