The lack of developers is very real. I'm just hopeful that the existing developers, many of which are talented now ex sun employees can push the code in the direction that they want, without worrying about what is best for Solaris.

If they do develop some cool things, that would naturally attract more developers & users. A lot of If's, I realize. But I guess this will give us a real opportunity to see if the world really wants an Open Solaris Like OS.
