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."

According to a survey on behalf of HP, Solaris has the brightest future:
http://www.itpro.co.uk/623683/unix-still-a-hit-for-mission-critical...

"According to the Coleman Parkes findings, the current operating system of choice for mission-critical systems is Solaris... HP-UX was in second place, followed by Windows."

It means that Solaris still has lots of customers and it is most used by all Unixes. Solaris has been shipped 13 million times, and OpenSolaris also several million times. All in all, Solaris has been shipped in almost 20 million licenses. And because OpenSolaris is open and free, the adoptation rate is better for Solaris than for any other closed Unix.

The next OpenSolaris 2010.06 version will be released soon.
