    The REAL reason is to help out Linux, IMHO.

    Of course. Sun knows that it's money customers aren't interested in
    Linux when they can have a well supported OS.

    SUN rocks. Solaris is the single best UNIX available right now.
    Everyone knows that. I think their goal is to allow the linux kernel
    hackers to check out their source. They know Linux is the biggest threat
    to MS. The more popular Linux/UNIX gets, the better off they are.
