Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "The number and gee-whizness of features Sun Microsystems is putting into updates to both the Solaris 10 commercial operating system and the related OpenSolaris development release of Solaris are slowing. That's the best indication that Nevada - the code name for Solaris Next or Solaris 11 or whatever you want to call it - is getting closer to release. Closer doesn't mean close, however. According to sources speaking to The Reg, Sun is quietly telling customers that Solaris 11 is targeted for launch sometime around the middle of 2010."

Probably it does mean the end of OpenSolaris. Oracle doesn't do FOSS unless they have to (see brtfs, which is only GPL because that's the only way they could get it into the Linux kernel) Chances are that the freeware (non-OSS) builds of "full" Solaris are toast also. Oracle doesn't like free (as in speech or as in beer)
