Nope not true.

Sun marketing may be confused intentionally or otherwise -- I've seen 
this happen before. This may be coming from the fact that all the Sun 
product literature mentions that 5.3 is going EOL -- again this is more 
due to the reason that they have a newer product being released.

Sun's branded 5.3 product is going away because they announced "N1 Grid 
Engine 6.0" on June 1st for general availibility on June 4 or a bit later.

This does not affect the open source project in any way, shape or form 
-- 5.3 still exists and 6.0 will be coming out of beta shortly.

FYI I've written as much as I have been able to learn about
Grid Engine 5.3, 6.0 and N1GE 6.0 at this URL, hope it helps!
