Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris In a weblog entry, Sun's President Jonathan Schwartz has announced that Sun is looking into applying a dual-license scheme to OpenSolaris-- CDDL and GPL3. "We recognize that diversity and choice are important - which is why we've begun looking at the possibility of releasing Solaris (and potentially the entire Solaris Enterprise System), under dual open source licenses. CDDL (which allows customer IP to safely comingle with Solaris source code) and under the Free Software Foundation's GPL3."

"On the other hand, I may be mistaken - if GPL3 code is legally allowed to enter GPL2 kernel."

The kernel isn't GPLv2, some parts of it are. Anyway, nothing prevents GPLv3 code from entering a GPLv2 project, nor the other way around.
