Red October Announcement
By pelegri on Nov 30, 2005
Sun just announced that Sun's entire server-side software portfolio will be free of charge and open source. This is internally known as Project Red October, after the fictional russian submarine in Tom Clancy's novel based on a typhoon class submarine. Read JL's blog for the why of the name. The deal includes Solaris 10, N1, Development Tools, and JES; it seems Sun is using the term Solaris Enterprise System for the whole thing.
