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."

OpenSolaris is licensed under the CDDL, not GPLv3

Still, gplv3 is delightfully linux-kernel-incompatible, so it doesn't make any difference.
