Submission + - Sun to GPLv3 OpenSolaris

uservoid writes: Sun Microsystems is set to license OpenSolaris under the upcoming GNU General Public License Version 3 in addition to the existing Common Development and Distribution License, sources close to the company have told eWEEK. OpenSolaris currently is licensed only under Sun's CDDL, but company executives have previously floated the idea of a dual license with GPLv3. Sources told eWEEK that this is very likely to happen after the release of that version of the GPL, which currently is being rewritten and is expected to be made final soon. http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,2084284,00.as p?kc=EWEWEMNL011507EP28A

"One Architecture, One OS" also translates as "One Egg, One Basket".
