Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris This morning, at the OpenSolaris Governing Board (OGB) meeting, the following was proposed and unanimously resolved: "The OGB is keen to promote the uptake and open development of OpenSolaris and to work on behalf of the community with Oracle, as such the OGB needs Oracle to appoint a liaison by August 16, 2010, who has the the authority to talk about the future of OpenSolaris and its interaction with the OpenSolaris community otherwise the OGB will take action at the August 23 meeting to trigger the clause in the OGB charter that will return control of the community to Oracle."

RE[3]: Shame for great technology

For example, look what Linux kernel developers said when OpenSolaris was opensourced. Nobody was going to look at it.

Another example, Debian guys thought about making Debian GNU/sunos - SunOS kernel with GNU user-land - but when they read CDDL, they decided to go with FreeBSD kernel and make Debian GNU/kFreeBSD port.

And yet, that's exactly what the Nexenta folks did. Took the OSol kernel, put the Ubuntu userland on top, and released it to the public.

Just because one group of devs decided it wasn't worth the effort doesn't mean the entire world did.
