Sun Microsystems announced its plan to release the source code for its Solaris operating system on Tuesday in order to compete more effectively against its core rivals IBM and HP.
The company will post more than 5 million lines of source code at the OpenSolaris Web site, containing kernel and networking code.
The kernel includes features such as predictive self-healing and Solaris containers for isolating an application within the operating system. Also included in the release are system libraries and commands.
The OpenSolaris community includes a new source browser, build tools, documentation, a community portal, mailing lists and blogs.

"The more people who run Unix and Solaris and open Solaris, the larger the opportunity is to sell the hardware, infrastructure and services necessary to put it into deployment. Open source doesn't mean no revenue, it means no barriers to growing revenue." - Jonathan Schwartz, Sun Microsystems.

Solaris is one of the major versions of the Unix operating system used in heavy-duty computing environments, such as financial services, air traffic control, and other transaction-laden computer processes.
