Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Sun's Ian Murdock gave a presentation about OpenSolaris at LugRadio Live this past weekend. He hopes to expose open source enthusiasts to unique Sun technologies by creating a cohesive distribution that will provide a complete environment that is adequate for day-to-day use. This will involve bringing together the Solaris operating system and a diverse assortment of open source community projects and "adding a package management system to hold all these pieces together," Murdock stated. The final release will take place in May and the distribution will adhere to a six-month release cycle, just like Fedora and Ubuntu."

GNU Userland

In the slide showing on that picture it says GNU Userland...
There was a whole project, dunno if it was Nextenda, or Belenix, or some other one.
Whichever one it was, what does this mean now that Sun is going that route?

BTW, I hate Solaris's find and grep so much that every time I need to do some work on a Solaris machine at work I have a little tarbal that I copy over into my local directory (no root access) and use that has gnu findutils and gnu grep
