I am not sure if you are aware
that Sun's latest OpenSPARC T1 is open source, yes thats not a lie, the
schematics are truelly availabe to anybody for zero payment.
Lets not forget most of solaris is open source, are Sun closing their
buisness?

Solaris is having to compete directly with Linux. Whether this gamble will

It probably doesn't matter if the OS is open or not,
it's the price of the hardware which makes the difference.
As long as entry level Sparc boxes cost factors more than
an ordinary peecee Solaris on Sparc won't win.
