Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris A recent vague announcement on osol-announce hints that something big is rumbling for OpenSolaris: "A number of the community leaders from the OpenSolaris community have been working quietly together on a new effort called Illumos, and we're just about ready to fully disclose our work to, and invite the general participation of, the general public." They have a website, and they're going to be hosting a conference call on August 3.

Dude, L4 is microkernel, Genode is something completely different...


I know ...

Putting up L4 dancing baloney on top and experimenting with it would throw all that maturity down the drain.


I cannot see your point.

I cannot see your point.

Point is: experimenting with microkernel requires time and people willing to bother with it. They have neither. They need something quick if they want to stay relevant and attract developers. Otherwise why bother at all?
