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.

I know the old phrase "Better the Devil you know than the one you don't," but looking at Larry Ellison's behavior from being a World Cup jerk to Oracle's attack on Red Hat, to killing OpenSolaris to suing Google, I'm starting to develop warm fuzzy feelings for Steve Balmer in contrast.
