Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "The number and gee-whizness of features Sun Microsystems is putting into updates to both the Solaris 10 commercial operating system and the related OpenSolaris development release of Solaris are slowing. That's the best indication that Nevada - the code name for Solaris Next or Solaris 11 or whatever you want to call it - is getting closer to release. Closer doesn't mean close, however. According to sources speaking to The Reg, Sun is quietly telling customers that Solaris 11 is targeted for launch sometime around the middle of 2010."

I don't care about OpenSolaris. Its a joke at best and might as well die.


You quoted my entire comment just to say that? So... you don't appreciate competition in the open source os ecosystem, then? The death of any open source platform I find to be a tragity, and Opensolaris especially so since there is a lot of really cool ideas in there. At least zfs and dtrace will be in FreeBSD, if everything else related to Opensolaris dies. But seeing a platform just really starting to open up only to be snapped up and probably closed again really stinks, especially one as well-designed as Solaris is.
