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.

You needed a sponsor from SUN and the hole progress of getting a patch committed and approved to OpenSolaris was daunting.

This is also what Illumos is trying to tackle. Keeping the standard of code high but actually letting people develop for it without the very reasonable fair of all there work being for nothing.

Nobody wanted to develop for OpenSolaris if the changes of your hard work actually getting excepted are slim to none.
