Glynn: sure there is something stopping me from installing OpenSolaris- point me to the iso. And Schillix doesn’t count. (And it doesn’t really matter what the motivations for CDDL are- the impact is to be GPL-incompatible, and that cannot have been a surprise that Sun only noticed later.) Look, I’m happy for Sun that there seems to be energy and innovation going on, and if that continues I think it will be healthy for GNOME, but it is very hard to understand why I can’t install OpenSolaris, and all too easy to understand why OpenSolaris is not GPL or dual-licensed like Mozilla and OOo.
