Yeah, I mean, now that Oracle bought Solaris (err... Sun), they will probably trash all of its holdings. They will go out of their way to sack Solaris, since it will be harder than discontinuing a closed source operating system. But, perhaps if we are lucky, the devs working on it will simply move to Linux development, and all of the zealous linux nerds can rest happily at night, knowing that they only have to worry about *BSD infringing on the geek-glamour, and that they can continue to turn their ire towards Microsoft as they have done for the past 8 years or so.

/I use linux and windows some as well
// Don't use *BSD, not much against it except some minor qualms with the license.
