Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Due to me not working for OSNews these past eight weeks, I've been a bit out of the loop, as I didn't really follow technology news. I did notice that a lot is going on in OpenSolaris land, and today, Oracle has outlined what it has planned for Solaris 11 - and according to some, the fears about OpenSolaris' future were justified.

license to protect opensolaris?

Would a different license to the one applied to opensolaris by Sun have protected it from Oracle? Ie improving it but taking it away from the community.

I remember criticism of Sun for using a cddl license - would someothing like GPL have protected opensolaris from Oracle?
