Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

And this is the first comment?. I guess that shows how much intrest there is in a new version of the now closed source Solaris.

Pity Sun chose an intentionally GPL incompatible license for Solaris, it really could have been something if there was only some more intrest in it from cross pollination with Linux.

I guess Solaris is still free for non comercial use, or something to that extent, though.
