Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in Oracle Solaris 10

 

Oracle is working to ensure that the strength of the Oracle Solaris Operating System is complemented by a collection of popular, freely available software. This freeware includes in-bound open source and third party components such as utilities, productivity tools, and development tools. Users can now more conveniently leverage the technologies shared on the Internet.
