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."

Solaris scales significantly better than any of the main commercial Linuxes, and is more stable under super high loads.

That must be how and why Linux has largely replaced Solaris in such areas and why Sun went out of business. I see the refrain still hasn't died.
