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 totally agree that they have should done it properly or not at all. The way things are, OpenSolaris should drop the "Open" from its name. It's a shame.

CDDL, GPL, BSD... all licenses would work if Sun really had the intention of creating a healthy open source project but they want to hold their feet in the proprietary world and created this mess.
