    That's a *VERY* big leading if. There is no such thing as an open
    source Solaris today.

    Personally, I don't believe that Solaris will be open source to the tune
    that Fedora is. Even if we do see some sort of open source license, it
    probably won't be GPL.

    Do you even see Sun release an open source OpenOffice? How about a true
    open source Java?

    If Sun can't or won't provide a truly open source Java, do you really
    expect them to open source an entire operating system?
