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."

I use it at home for ZFS for a home fileserver and as a MySQL server. I like ZFS so much that although I've contemplated switching to Debian tomake it easier to set up other services, I just can't bear the thought of losing ZFS's flexibility. And Linux RAID/LVM (which I use on my other machines) does the trick, it still comes nowhere near the partition flexibility of ZFS.

I've heard some rumours that ZFS may be coming to Linux though -- depending on how that goes I'd consider switching, though I didn't find FreeBSD or Nexenta to be a suitable replacement for OpenSolaris either.
