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.

I don't think that can be done. Remember Mainframe port of OpenSolaris? Oracle killed it just by firing the guy who was assigned to compile blobs on the mainframe. If Oracle stops compiling those blobs for every release, it is as good as dead. It can't run without libc.
