Solaris 10 in the NYT

Get ready for a wild week of Solaris 10 platform news. John Markoff kicks it off tonight in the New York Times:

Sun Microsystems plans to unveil on Monday the latest version of its flagship Solaris operating system. It also intends to offer a free version of the program to make it more attractive to corporate and academic computer users.
...
The pricing shift is an effort to put pressure on software competitors like Microsoft and Red Hat, the biggest distributor of the free Linux operating system. The shift could also broaden the market for Solaris by making it easier to try out.
...
Sun currently has about a million Solaris users around the world, according to an estimate by the International Data Corporation, a market research firm. "They're looking for ubiquity," said Jean S. Bozman, a computer industry analyst at I.D.C.
