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."

Very few small companies need what Solaris offers over Linux, and Linux will often be cheaper for them to run, since a Linux administrator is easier found than a Solaris one and one can be less choosy with hardware.
