Today Sun announced to bundle Sun Java Enterprise System, Sun N1 management software and other development tools with the already free Solaris operating system. I welcome this decision. With this Sun is not reinventing itself, it is just bringing its' free soul out. Sun tried ealier to give the hardware free at the cost of the software but I guess this makes a much more sense. BTW, I am also happy because one of my pet projects will come to a proper end. I was given the task to create http://devservices.sun.com which allows subscription based software/patches and content downloads. With JES going free I guess this portal is not necessary. It makes me happy when a project comes to its' logical end. A proper EOL'ing.
