Oracle and SUN

There's a rumour going around that Oracle is close to ending all development of Solaris, effectively killing the operating system.

Solaris being canned, at least 50% of teams to be RIF'd in short term. All hands meetings being cancelled on orders from legal to prevent news from spreading. Hardware teams being told to cease development. There will be no Solaris 12, final release will be 11.4. Orders coming straight from Larry.

It's just rumours for now, but they've been gaining steam over the past few days.

Solaris development since Oracle has been meager? How is that? Theres been a consistent major release almost every year since Oracle acquired Solaris and the latest release coming out, expected to be called Solaris 12 has over 1400 enhancements with major updates to security & cloud
