> Nexenta uses Debian ontop of OpenSolaris, but they did this without permission. The Debian community threw a fit, but the commotion seems to have died down without any legal action against Nexenta.

I don't understand the problem. Do the Debian guys think that third parties need their permission to put another kernel on top of Debian?

I should think that the OpenSolaris kernel would be covered by the GPL's "system software" clause.
