"If Sun release Solaris under the GPL then many of the interesting features in Linux will find their
way into Solaris."
What features would those be? Solaris already does anything Linux can do. The only real benefit
would be porting drivers for x86 hardware from Linux to Solaris, but Sun could already port
drives from *BSD if they wanted.
