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.

While the project was started by Oracle, the code is GPL and already merged int the mainline kernel. Josef Bacik of Red hat is one of the fulltime developers ( along with two others from oracle ). There is widespread plans for adoption from many distros. While an outright Oracle drop of the project would delay it, I doubt they would be able to stop it.
