Sun Microsystems has finally released the source code for their Solaris operating system over at OpenSolaris.org. They had previously made the binary version of the OS available to developers for free, but the availability of the source code is a new step. I haven’t used Solaris, myself, but I know that there are a lot of supporters (and detractors) out there.
The company released all of the code associated with Solaris 10 at OpenSolaris.org: the core operating system, networking, system libraries and commands.
All the features available in Solaris 10 are in the download, officials said, for both Sparc and x64/x86 architectures.
