Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris A Computerworld blog speculates that the open-source Unix distribution may live on, but Oracle won't be supporting it. At this point, "OpenSolaris' only real future is as a fork, which would not be easy to pull off. Still, with enough interest from developers it could be done. OpenSolaris is licensed under the GPLv3 CDDL and various other OSS licenses, so the base code is available."

"SUN MicrosystemsThe open-source Unix distribution may live on, but Oracle won't be supporting it."

This sounds like a fact. When did Larry Ellison say this officially? Where is the link? Can somebody link to it?

I mean, OS News would never disguise a guess, as a fact because that wouldnt be appropriate. Some would even call it FUD, and OS News dont FUD. Where is the link to Larry Ellisons or Oracle Executives claiming this?

Yes I seen the link in the article, but that is just a guy writing down his guesses (wishes). It is not facts. So where are the facts and the true link?
