Oracle and SUN "Oracle's acquisition of Sun raised a lot of questions about the future of Sun's core technologies. Oracle says that it is committed to Solaris and Java, but some open source advocates are concerned about the implications for OpenOffice.org and MySQL. Ars looks at how Oracle and members of the open source software community have responded to the acquisition."

Matt! very pessimistic!

The moves on OpenSolaris lately have been great. Sun have actually made some of their fantastic technologies accessible and pleasant to use even for simple desktop use (ZFS - Time Slider for example)

I see nothing but improvement in how Sun have been moving towards a rational product set that is well integrated and easy to use (whilst keeping their other good properties), sure they were coming of a low base but they are definitely heading in the right direction.
