Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris IBM and Sun Microsystems are in the final stages of an 18-month-long project to adapt the OpenSolaris operating system to run optimally on Big Blue's z System mainframes. David Boyes, president and chief technology officer of Sine Nomine Associates, a consultancy that handled most of the integration and migration duties, told eWEEK at the Gartner Data Center Conference 2007 that the new IBM-tuned version of OpenSolaris will be ready soon. He declined to be more specific.

"The next generation of mainframes are going to be based on POWER6, with emulation (similar to the AS/400 - RS/6000 merge). This will give them one hardware platform to support, with AIX for free."

This is completely wrong. The eclipz project yielded 2 processors.
