Well, the article is a bit late - 14 months late actually. So June is 
kind of right, but it was already in June 2009:-)

Starting with SGE 6.2 Update 3  Sun Microsystems (not Oracle) has 
changed the license terms of the Sun Grid Engine. We've made the always 
clear and didn't have to hide anything, see e.g. here:

    http://gridengine.sunsource.net/news/SGE62u3-announce.html

or here:

http://gridengine.sunsource.net/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=38&dsMessageId=203077

and the topic had been picked up a few times in discussions on the 
mailing lists since then.
