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.

forking opensolaris would be a personal exercise by the forkers. the project is too large to actually survive with so little blood. eventually they'd get bored and quit.

all potential opensolaris fork developers should save some time and help the greater good by joining an existing unix-like project instead. I hear freebsd and pc-bsd have work that needs to be done.
