On a good note, things can be incorporated into Illumos that Opensolaris lacked IMO, such as a decent open patch and package manager. The last time I tested Opensolaris, you had to reinstall in order to receive the update.
Again, I could be wrong in regards to the latest versions of Opensolaris since I haven't bothered with it since in favor of Solaris Express
