The first component of OpenSolaris that has been made available so far has logged 3,683 downloads.
The DTrace application, a system optimization tool, was the first part of OpenSolaris that has been made available when Sun announced the release of the source code last Tuesday. The complete version of OpenSolaris is slated for a release in the second quarter of this year.
The 3,683 downloads might seem minor, but it does show that there is genuine interest from the developer community for OpenSolaris. Also, the release of DTrace can be seen as a PR move, largely meant to show Sun's commitment to opening the source code. It plays only a minor part in the larger scheme of open sourcing Solaris.
