Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Due to me not working for OSNews these past eight weeks, I've been a bit out of the loop, as I didn't really follow technology news. I did notice that a lot is going on in OpenSolaris land, and today, Oracle has outlined what it has planned for Solaris 11 - and according to some, the fears about OpenSolaris' future were justified.

It isn't the license that is the problem. The CDDL allows for forking.

The problem has long been that OpenSolaris has not attracted outside development. The vast majority of the commits have been from Sun.

Any fork of OpenSolaris would just stagnate.
