Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris In a weblog entry, Sun's President Jonathan Schwartz has announced that Sun is looking into applying a dual-license scheme to OpenSolaris-- CDDL and GPL3. "We recognize that diversity and choice are important - which is why we've begun looking at the possibility of releasing Solaris (and potentially the entire Solaris Enterprise System), under dual open source licenses. CDDL (which allows customer IP to safely comingle with Solaris source code) and under the Free Software Foundation's GPL3."

Happy to hear that they see advantages of GPL v3 ;) . I don't understand why people call it "the biggest failure of 2006" ;) it is still under development (currently public consultations - if you don't like something about gpl v3 don't call it a "failure" - publish your comments at fsf's site).
