By now everyone has heard of Sun's foray into Open Source Solaris. Groklaw has an interesting run down of the incompatibilities between the CDDL and the GPL. I find the whole thing tremendously interesting, but when you really think about it and the possible implications for Linux, it is not all that exciting. Sure, Solaris 10 is a hell of an operating system by most accounts, but at this point I think of it like the hoopla that surrounded Apple's release of Darwin. That too, was one hell of an operating system, with all of the doomsayers heralding it as the end of Linux... Well, a few years later not so much. Heh.
