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."

No, the problem with open solaris is that no one uses it, because it isn't any better enough than whatever anyone is already using for that task to justify a change.

Which is the problem many alternative OS's face in this day and age of wintel machines with significant uptimes, and SMP Linux beasts. If we are going to swich to something and make it cool, lets make it really cool. Like, a plan 9 clone with an api written entirely in haskell.
