Sun releases Solaris code

By   |  June 15, 2005

The Register reports that Sun Microsystems yesterday released a healthy portion of the Solaris source code to the community.

Sun first introduced the idea of an open source version of Solaris way back in 2000. Since then there has been a continuous to-and-fro from the company as it seemingly tried to make up its mind about these announced plans.

Today, however, OpenSolaris is a reality as is a community website, a decent source code browser and a host of blogs.

The Register writes: \”The length of time needed for Sun to roll out a substantial chunk of Solaris under CDDL proves that large companies just can\’t turn on a dime – no matter how much they\’d like to. At the same time, it proves companies can turn. Sun needs a lift right now and OpenSolaris could well fuel part of a larger morale and revenue boost.\”

The initial release includes the kernel and core libraries. The full OpenSolaris distribution is expected in the second half of this year. There is a roadmap here.

The OpenSolaris code is being released under the Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL).
