Sun freely admit that they are copying Ubuntu with the OpenSolaris Starter Kit
Sun freely admit that they are copying Ubuntu with the announcement that people can now receive an OpenSolaris Starter Kit that contains OpenSolaris, its source and associated documentation for free, worldwide postage included.
And why shouldn't they admit it? It was a good idea for Ubuntu and similarly it can do well for OpenSolaris.
Check it out at http://get.opensolaris.org/.
56k OpenSolaris fans can rejoice!
