Re: Request: Source for parts of GNU/Solaris


I'm amazed at the level of intolerence that's greeting a pretty major
contribution to the free software community. There are, what, five major
OS/kernels for PCs/workstatsions these days -- Windows, OS X, Solaris,
BSD and Linux. How does it make any sense at all to be hostile to the
fact that now four out of those five are free at their core?

I think that in this instant case, the "hostility" is the allegation that a Debian-based "GNU/Solaris" system as described by Erast isn't possible. Even when pressed, Erast hasn't addressed the CDDL/GPL incompatibility issue. And that's obviously a topic that plenty of people in the Debian crowd have an opinion on. :)

I don't see it as hostility, I see it as an attempt to enforce the GPL.
