Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Hot on the heals of Oracle's revamp of Solaris support, the licensing agreement for free downloads of Solaris 10 have changed. Here is the bit in question: "...Please remember, your right to use Solaris acquired as a download is limited to a trial of 90 days, unless you acquire a service contract for the downloaded Software". So far the OpenSolaris license has not changed, it's still CDDL."

Oh well, it's not the end of the world, there are other operating systems.

I don't know what Oracle are planning, but my guess they want to turn it into some "enterprise" product. I started loosing interest in Solaris when Sun killed their UltraSPARC workstations. I used to be a fan of SPARC hardware, but it's too expensive and inaccessible to many hackers.
