WSJ.com - Sun, Challenging Linux, To Issue Open-Source Rules

WSJ.com - Sun, Challenging Linux, To Issue Open-Source Rules: "Sun Microsystems Inc. is releasing long-awaited ground rules for making its flagship software available on an open-source basis, hoping to regain momentum from the popular Linux operating system.
The Santa Clara, Calif., computer maker has drafted an open-source licensing plan that differs from the license that governs Linux. Sun tomorrow is expected to announce plans to disclose technology associated with a forthcoming version of its operating system, called Solaris 10, under the new licensing terms in the second quarter. It plans to immediately disclose technical details of a Solaris 10 feature, called dynamic tracing, that helps make application programs run faster."
