Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

What this means to you, Thom, is that you are closer to reporting about the Solaris spinoffs plundering the Solaris 11 source code for the good of the universe

(FreeBSD, ixsystems, Nexenta, Joyent, Illumos, OpenIndiana...)

A quick factual correction: Solaris was initially a BSD spin-off, back when it was called SunOS. While FreeBSD has incorporated some Solaris code, it is an insult - not to mention ignorant - to call it a Solaris spin-off.
