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."

Oracle is completely ending all Sun machines aimed at the desktop market. Kind of a problem since out entire CS department revolves around Sun hardware.

Everyone I knew who had Sun workstations bailed from the over ten years ago when the writing was on the wall with Linux and x86. If you haven't jumped by now then I can't say I have much sympathy for you.
