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.

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.

"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.
