Despite Sun's apparent hesitation in committing Solaris 10 to open source, Loiacono revealed Sun revealed plans to open source the company's entire middleware stack, starting in 2005.
Apparent hesitation? Wow ... that's wild. Wildly wrong, but whatever. What's interesting is the second half ... the middleware bit.
"Solaris 10 is not the only technology I'm interested in open sourcing. But I need licenses. There is no one license that's appropriate to all. I have other things coming that CDDL would be appropriate to. We have a whole portfolio of middleware we will get aggressive with," Loiacono said.
