"Microsoft is...clearing the decks...for an all out assault on Linux!" 

"Aside from sending the message that Microsoft is no longer the bully but is willing to negotiate its disputes (a strategy that probably costs them a great deal less than litigation), I think Microsoft is...clearing the decks...for an all out assault on Linux! (Actually, an assault on the GPL is probably the more likely scenario.) Clearing up matters with Novell only strengthens Microsoft's position and puts Novell precariously close to the edge if either 1) SCO prevails in proving Unix ownership, or 2) Microsoft goes after the GPL itself and prevails.

Aligned with Sun Microsystems -- the only truly "untouchable" Unix license holder, and duly licensed by SCO, Microsoft would be a formidable opponent indeed. And, a Linux (or GPL) defeat in the U.S. courts would make any EU decision empty."

"Linux Smackdown Pinned On Solaris 10" Says CRN

"Sun Microsystems aims to slow the momentum of Red Hat Linux by giving away Solaris 10 and offering free migration services through its services arm and select partners.

Sun, which will launch the latest version of its Unix operating system Monday, said it will match Red Hat's business model and go a step further by allowing customers to download and run Solaris 10 in production at no charge."

Paula Rooney, writing at CRN.com, November 12, 2004

"Sun hopes that a free Solaris 10 will...attract customers"

"With access to the code, Solaris users will be able to take advantage of its features when developing their own software and systems. The move stands in contrast to Microsoft's Windows and other proprietary operating systems in which the blueprints are released only to select outsiders, if any.

Depending on the final license, Sun's strategy could make Solaris more competitive with open-source operating systems like Linux and distributors such as Red Hat."

Jonathan Schwartz on Open-Sourcing Solaris 

"Question: There is no third-party software in Solaris that can't be open-sourced?

"Answer: There may be a few little binary plugs here or there, things like drivers that maybe their owners weren't interested in open-sourcing, but the vast majority of features, functionality and breadth of technology represented in Solaris will be in fact licensed under a common model and delivered to the open-source community."

Jonathan Schwartz, in a Q&A with Computerworld, November 11, 2004
