"Sun Microsystems unveiled Solaris 8 operating system Wednesday during a New York press conference and announced that the OS will ship in early March."
"Sun officials touted the forthcoming OS release as historical, with President and Chief Operating Officer Ed Zander proclaiming, "there is no Unix marketplace anymore. It's a Solaris marketplace," and insisting, "this is the platform to bet your future company on...."
"Sun also announced that it will not charge licensing fees for Solaris 8, and that it will offer free access to Solaris source and end-user binary code. While the software and co-packaged code will be free, Sun is charging a $75 media fee that covers receiving the OS in 10 languages and a companion CD."
