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 don't think MySQL and VirtualBox are chewing through the money as Solaris is.

No, but a) mysql is actually a competing product and b) oracle already has their own virtualization product. Not that anyone is using it but still.
