 Sun firmly believes that students and
 teachers need access to source code
 to enhance their technology learning
 experience. Source code is available
 for qualified educational institutions.

Even if you don't qualify for the free source code, You can get it for $100 - details at http://www.sun.com/edu/solaris/source.html
