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.

What we need is a Centos of the Solaris ecosystem. Illumos appears to fit this niche.


Since nexenta is involved, it might be that they just grab the kernel and use Linux userspace. Which is the only way it'll make any sense.

Be it as it may, people on Solaris / OpenSolaris have probably been browsing the red hat website since Oracle purchase.
