Ah, yeah, I had forgotten that they had done that before too. Anyway, it is interesting to see them following the marketing idea of sending free CDs - like what has already been succesfully done by Canonical in marketing Ubuntu - and interesting to see if they succeed in getting more OpenSolaris users with that idea or not.
