Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris The OpenSolaris governing board fell on its collective sword Monday and resigned en masse after Oracle continued to ignore its ultimatum to appoint a liaison guy to work with it on the future of the open source project. The move was anticlimactic to say the least. Oracle last week leaked an internal e-mail into the wild effectively saying OpenSolaris is dead. The news of the mass resignation, coupled with Oracle suing Google claiming Android infringes on its Java patents, had Adobe's director of open source and standards David McAllister casting Oracle as the New Microsoft and saying "the axis of evil has shifted south about 850 miles or so".

upower is not "gnome technology", it's desktop linux technology.

libpower seems (on superficial glance - quick googling didn't tell much, as opposed to what I found by googling for upower) to be something that predates, and is made redundant by, upower.


There was a leaked slide show which talked about a new libpower set for release in 2011Q4 which apparently will replace the old one - the new one will be a lot more fine grained and efficient apparently (rumour has it).

I understand that it isn't gnome technology but there is a close affinity between GNOME and upower/udisks.
