available, with looks at SCO, Red Hat, Novell, Mandrakesoft, Sun, and more.
"We believe that SUNW had little choice other than to make its
license incompatible with the GPL, otherwise the best parts of Solaris
would have simply been usurped and added to Linux. Thus we are skeptical
that a robust development community will form around SUNW's code, thereby
defeating the benefits of Open Source. As we have stated in the past, we
believe that SUNW is wasting critical resources by competing with broadly
supported, and rapidly evolving, Open Source projects versus taking a more
agnostic approach that caters to customer's desires.
