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.

That must be why Linus describes himself as a benevolent dictator.

Or why Shuttleworth asks the community for their opinion even though he clearly doesn't care if the majority is against him.

Indeed. Ubuntu is an open source project, but not developed in an open way.
Most upstream projects Ubuntu uses have an open development model (eg GNOME) but Ubuntu itself has not.

Open source is a licensing scheme.
Open development is an interacting method between developers and potential developers.

Neither is a religion.
