Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Pavel Heimlich has announced the release of an updated version of Korona 4.4.3: "Korona is the live DVD adding KDE4 packages on top of OpenSolaris. It is intended to be the showcase of the current state of the kde-solaris project, definitely not a distribution for any serious use."

I am still not sure what Oracles influence to OpenSolaris is. If they don't care about the project maybe the community takes the control. Even though there seem to be only few user it looks to me like there are a lot of experienced people still interested in OpenSolaris. If they show endurance I think OpenSolaris will not die to fast. I am not a big fan of (Open)Solaris, but I think it's a good thing to have open System, which are mature enough to actually use them. Be it as a server or desktop. Good developments also have a positive influence on other systems as projects, like ZFS and dtrace have shown.
