Oracle

Submission + - F*ck you too, Oracle. (sun.com)

Crackez writes: The patch policy for Solaris has silently been changed by Oracle quite severely. The new strategy, which is also documented in "Software Update Entitlement Policy for Solaris" (http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-61-203648-1), enforces the requirement of a support contract to download any patch.

Unlike before, even security patches are not available for free anymore.
