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."

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?

Yeah, he was lying about Windows, whatever he said. Windows is a even less secure than he says it is.

On the other hand, even a broken clock is right two times a day. Maybe he was right about that.

He claimed that Vista had no security improvements over XP.

I think his entire opinion of Vista was based on screenshots and hearsay.

Not that I ever got that upset with him. He's just another tech tabloid writer that cares more about pageviews than anything else.
