Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Well, Oracle went from one of those big enterprise-serving companies most of us don't deal with to one of the more hated companies in our little community. Not only did they just sue Google over Android and its use of Java-related technologies, they also just officially killed off OpenSolaris. Solaris will still be open source, but source code will only come after each major release - development will happen behind closed doors.

Oracle is going down.

Open source is a freight train that not even the giant Microsoft has been able to stop. This reminds me of SCO and Novell. SCO tried to stop the train and is a 15 mile skid mark now. Novell just looked at it wrong and they are still licking their wounds. Open source will suffer but Oracle has made a lot of enemies. I hope this is not what happens but that is what it looks like will happen.
