Solaris software portal faces closure
Lack of funding may force free software portal Blastwave, one of the only sources for pre-packaged Solaris software, to close its doors. Since 2002, the portal has been bundling publicly available software in an easy-to-use format for download by users of Sun's Solaris operating system. Its founder, Dennis Clarke told ZDNet UK sister site ZDNet Australia the project's software archive was being mirrored by thirty other repositories around the world, and probably saw around 10 million individual downloads in the past year.
