CNET: Open-source clan in spat with Sun

This article mentions that OpenBSD used strong-arm tactics to influence Sun to provide hardware details. The article says de Raadt says he's been trying for a year to obtain low-level details from Sun about its UltraSparc III chip. "... UltraSparc III features ... are well-suited to OpenBSD's emphasis on security--for example, memory protections that make computers less vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks."

"If Sun says they are open, they need to start acting it."
