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."

Any somewhat experienced Linux, FreeBSD, ... developer could just as well also work on OpenSolaris or a potential fork.


The problem is that OpenSolaris hasn't garnered the attention of outside developers.
