Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "Sun's Ian Murdock gave a presentation about OpenSolaris at LugRadio Live this past weekend. He hopes to expose open source enthusiasts to unique Sun technologies by creating a cohesive distribution that will provide a complete environment that is adequate for day-to-day use. This will involve bringing together the Solaris operating system and a diverse assortment of open source community projects and "adding a package management system to hold all these pieces together," Murdock stated. The final release will take place in May and the distribution will adhere to a six-month release cycle, just like Fedora and Ubuntu."

RE: GNU Userland

In the slide showing on that picture it says GNU Userland...
There was a whole project, dunno if it was Nextenda, or Belenix, or some other one.
Whichever one it was, what does this mean now that Sun is going that route?

Solaris has multiple userlands for a while. Which one gets used just depends if they're in front of the rest of the PATH env variable or not.

Developer Preview 1 had /usr/gnu/bin in front, apparently with the coming May release, you can chose during install.
