Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Due to me not working for OSNews these past eight weeks, I've been a bit out of the loop, as I didn't really follow technology news. I did notice that a lot is going on in OpenSolaris land, and today, Oracle has outlined what it has planned for Solaris 11 - and according to some, the fears about OpenSolaris' future were justified.

Of course, customers will care. Nobody wants to be locked into proprietary expensive platforms.

You mean the same customers that are buying Oracle?

Every technology investment comes trade-offs. To make technology decisions based entirely upon whether or not the code is open is foolish. There are plenty of cases where expensive proprietary software pays for itself over time.

Totally agree. Being in the enterprise Solaris game myself I couldn't care less if it's open or not. I want it to work and be supported both of which it does this very, very well.
