SubjectRe: Solaris source (fwd)

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.
