Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Well, Oracle went from one of those big enterprise-serving companies most of us don't deal with to one of the more hated companies in our little community. Not only did they just sue Google over Android and its use of Java-related technologies, they also just officially killed off OpenSolaris. Solaris will still be open source, but source code will only come after each major release - development will happen behind closed doors.

I think it is in the interest of Oracle to make it better. But not the OSS edition. Probably the Free (beer) but not Free (Libre) version. They don't make money on virt, but it is part of the vertical market Oracle want.
