Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris A recent vague announcement on osol-announce hints that something big is rumbling for OpenSolaris: "A number of the community leaders from the OpenSolaris community have been working quietly together on a new effort called Illumos, and we're just about ready to fully disclose our work to, and invite the general participation of, the general public." They have a website, and they're going to be hosting a conference call on August 3.

The more diversity in operating systems, the better...

To a point I agree. It doesn't help much if the total pool of developers are spread so thin that development of each individual OS is slower than it need be.

Diversity is fine so long as it doesn't distract.
