Oracle and SUN Today Oracle released its latest version of Solaris technology, the Oracle Solaris 11 Express 2010.11 release. It includes a large number of new features not found in either Oracle Solaris 10 or previous OpenSolaris releases including ZFS encryption and deduplication, network-based packaging and provisioning systems, network virtualization, optimized I/O for NUMA platforms and optimized platform support including support for Intel's latest Nehalem and SPARC T3. In addition, Oracle Solaris 10 support is available from within a container/zone so migration of existing systems is greatly simplified. The release is available under a variety of licenses including a supported commercial license on a wide variety of x86 and SPARC platforms.

Why didn't it catch on when it was open sourced? Mostly Licensing, Sun's own seeming total lack of coherent direction, and the fact it was sort of a headache to deal with for people used to Linux based systems.

Bit of a loose reason say something like that. I'm a convert from Linux to Solaris and Solaris is far easier to manage and support in my view.

Now it is. Back when it was first open sourced it was the bad old days of manual dependency resolution
