Re: SUMMARY: Solaris 2.2 licensing

Before everyone goes totally non-linear, please bear in mind that for
years Sun has been fialing to enforce the licence terms called for in
the standard System V redistribution licence. Other vendors, like DEC,
have been enforcing it all along. Sun folks have gotten a free ride.
So yes, it's a horrible shock -- but it isn't really Suns fault. The
legal world (ATT/USL/whoever) just is catching up to them.

More reason to buy BSDI, I guess. Hey Rob -- when's 4.1.3 emulation
on a sparc gonna be ready :-)!
