Jonathan Schwartz’s Weblog Opening up Solaris and giving it away for free has led to the single largest wave of adoption Solaris has ever seen - some 3.4 million licenses since February this year (most on HP, curiously).

Since Jonathan has a) said Sun will help you, and b) laid out a plan that made sense, it looks like customers owning HP hardware got the message … big time!
