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.

Do not forget that Oracle do invest in Linux development

Oracle did invest in Linux development (and had their own distro), before they had their own in house OS to run their software on. Now that they have their own OS and no longer really need Linux I'd be very surprised if the investments continue. I don't think Oracle cares too much about customers running smallish databases on cheap hardware.
