Good to see the open source Solaris family getting together here; shame it was all so far from here.

A new operations system distribution emerges from the OpenSolaris/Illumos legacy. An excellent piece of work technically, bringing all the strengths that Solaris bequeathed to Illumos into union with the strength of KVM and pragmatically binding them together with BSD packaging. The real questions will be around licensing since this package blends all three licensing styles with just a grin.

Another of the key Solaris guys quits. A key figure in the development the ZFS storage appliance as well as of DTrace in Solaris kernel engineering, Mike was also the guy that shut down OpenSolaris for Oracle.

It's still only an evaluation license, but at least they have got rid of the limited period.

"OpenIndiana is part of the Illumos Foundation, and provides a true open source community alternative to Solaris 11 and Solaris 11 Express, with an open development model and full community participation."

Interesting and useful exploration of the history of OpenSolaris and Solaris puts Oracle's actions into perspective. It also shows why Illumos is a true open source community with a bright future, as it's the coming together of skilled developers who each have different reasons to need a Illumos and are synchronizing those fragmentary interests in an open and equal community around a shared commons.

"While I would have vastly preferred for Illumos to have a cooperative and collaborative relationship with Oracle, it appears that Oracle doesn't value this."

"We're really getting our grip around building a mission critical operating system that includes technologies from openSolaris that we've been working on for some time as well as technologies that we've more recently developed. ... Solaris 11 will be a superset of what is in openSolaris." Sounds like the rumours that Oracle was no longer going to engage in open source development of Solaris were true. The best it seems we can hope for is an act-of-grace over-the-wall drop of some of the source code to Solaris 11 after it's released.
