Oracle and SUN Reaffirming prior statements, Sun said that it intends to open-source its Java and N1 software at a later date. The free software will cover its Java Enterprise System set of server middleware, Java development tools and N1 management software. The move will create a single package called the Solaris Enterprise System. It will include Sun's Solaris 10 operating system, PostgreSQL open-source database, the Java Enterprise System server software and tools, Sun N1-branded provisioning and management tools, and Secure Desktop software.

There's no pleasing these people because they are really employees of Redhat, Novell, IBM, HP and Dell

Sun gets all the respect from its customers and to those guys who are going to gripe about Sun's free software, well you can go take a flying - if you know what I mean.

man you really have no clue about what your talking about, everything sun has said has come true. Maybe you should read the blogs and statements from the employees about sun's announcements and strategies.

your one of those people that probably think solaris still isn't open sourced although sun claimed they "will".
