Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris A Computerworld blog speculates that the open-source Unix distribution may live on, but Oracle won't be supporting it. At this point, "OpenSolaris' only real future is as a fork, which would not be easy to pull off. Still, with enough interest from developers it could be done. OpenSolaris is licensed under the GPLv3 CDDL and various other OSS licenses, so the base code is available."

Yes I seen the link in the article, but that is just a guy writing down his guesses (wishes). It is not facts. So where are the facts and the true link?

The author was the Director of Open Source at Sun and has been involved with Open Solaris board since it was created.

SVJN worked at Sun? You got it wrong.

You are probably talking about Simon Phipps, but linked article is written by SVJN. SVJN is resident troll on CW and he doesn't know to tell the difference between Java and JavaScript. It is funny that he thinks that OpenSolaris is GPLv3.

SJVN once again shows how little he reads about other operating systems. But that won't stop him from giving his analysis.

I caught him before making up stuff about Windows security. Could he not spend 10 minutes reading about the subject?
