Sun continues to not get it when it comes to open source licensing. It’s nice to see that Sun’s competitors are getting their shots in:
“They will not be able to build a viable community to support Open Solaris if they use the CDDL,” Rovira said. “What they are saying to the community about their support for open source and Linux is that they are half pregnant.
“There are no half measures here: You either are or you aren’t. This is part of the schizophrenic attitude we continue to see coming out of Sun,” he said.
The one ray of hope here is that Sun really does seem to want to build a viable community around Open Solaris and just about everyone is telling them they can’t do it with the CDDL.
