Sun continues to muck with open source

I'm just like the guy in the article. When I started, I was in love with Sun, wanted a Sun, and all the geophysics world used Sun. I got Sun machines into the big company, until the bloody MS purge.

Of course, Sun botched up everything for years. They became disconnected with the hot stuff. Now, they've been trying to get back with an open form of Solaris, but always they didn't go far enough, they had massive fights within the company not to give away the crown jewels. Now they open up another notch. Will it be enough? That's why it's always fun to watch this story....
