QNX As of April 2010, a silent change was made on Foundry27, users with a myQNX account could no longer checkout/update their copies of the QNX SVN repositories and a vague Wiki page was created "detailing" some licencing clarifications.

Your GPL hate rather makes a point for that if it had been released under GPL if Solaris died / Oracle f--ked up then atleast some of the good parts could had ended up in Linux for people to switch to.


I don't think anything of value remains.

Btrfs and utrace/systemtap are already the more "linuxy" ways of doing what was considered valuable in Solaris before (zfs/dtrace). I suppose dtrace was deeply intertwined with the os, and zfs reinvents the whole FS stack from top to bottom.

So basically we don't need to fret about the licensing decision anymore.
