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 is BS. Nobody wants to be locked in, but sometimes companies will reluctantly chose lock in due to lack of better choice.


Maybe I worded my post poorly. Basically that is what I am saying. Companies CHOSE to be locked into specific hardware/software combinations because those products met their needs and did a good job of it... and STILL DO in many cases. VMS is still supported by HP because there is a sizable install base and people don't WANT to switch.
