You bought hardware. With each piece of hardware comes one minimal
right-to-use licence for SunOS, free. That's the way it's always been
with Sun. Buy software maintenance, get free RTU licence upgrades.
Don't buy software maintenance, you have to pay for RTU licence
upgrades. Again, that's the way it's always been with Sun.
