We're Giving Everything Away
By webmink on Nov 30, 2005
Today's big news from Sun is that we're giving everything in our server-side software portfolio away free of charge - we're confident you'll like it all so much you'll buy our service and support packages, but there's no catch and no risk if you don't. The new Solaris Enterprise System incorporates Sun's complete software stack, and it's all available as a no-cost download. You'll remember we did the same with the Solaris 10 operating system before we open sourced it to make OpenSolaris, and this is the next step in our move into being a Participation Age software and systems company. Charging for binaries is so last millennium!
