Oracle to Cut Sun's Open Source Offerings
"Word on the street is that Oracle wants to move Solaris back to being proprietary and revenue generating," Farrell reported.
"Oracle's cunning plan for Solaris 10," Farrell wrote, "is to require the purchase of a license after an initial 90-day trial."
He said that Oracle appears to be more excited about Java and positioning itself in the middleware marketplace.
"Its cunning plan seems to be to turn itself into a sort of database oriented IBM," Farrell said.
