Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Frustrated by Oracle's delay in releasing the latest version of OpenSolaris, the OpenSolaris Governing Board is growing uneasy over Oracle's lack of communication regarding the future of the Unix OS code. At least two members of the board have even said they would be open to forking the code base from the Oracle version.

I agree with the opinions expressed about possibly forking it also. Prospective clients may have to use OpenSolaris as somewhat of an evaluation seeings that Solaris is no longer free for people to try. Oracle is another company that bought out the competition, they will pick through the remaining carcass of Sun Microsystems and take what they want and leave the rest to die. It's the name of the game.
