Oracle and SUN Sometimes, Google's search engine does a better job of telling us about IT vendors than the vendors' own public relations and marketing machines, which are often there mostly to deflect questions rather than answer them. So it is with the next commercial and development iterations of Oracle's Solaris Unix operating system.

Seems plenty of activity when the devs are around on #opensolaris and the CIA notifications. PSARCS are still being opened and closed, Nexenta is still busy on it, ZFS is moving fast.

For a 'dead' and 'failed' project theres an awful lot of Oracle resource still working on it ;)

One thing I have noticed is that the lx-branded zone just came out of OpenSolaris (ran linux 2.4 kernel bins) - perhaps because Oracle are tweaking that inhouse to migrate Enterprise Linux users to Solaris Zones and don't want to give that away for free?
