Will OpenSolaris 2010 Make It Out This Month?
Phoronix: Will OpenSolaris 2010 Make It Out This Month?
Not only is the future for X12 unknown, but there is also an uncertain outlook for OpenSolaris. The successor to OpenSolaris 2009.06 (released last June) was supposed to be OpenSolaris 2010.02 and released in February of this year as implied by its date. However, four months later, there still are no signs of this OpenSolaris update. Sun Microsystems originally planned for the OpenSolaris operating system to be updated every six months, but now we are a year into OpenSolaris 2009.06 and this is clearly no longer the interest of Oracle, Sun's new owner...
Do not worry OpenSolaris will be here soon
Forking OpenSolaris is really a bad idea, and i'll tell you why. OpenSolaris community can be strong when it is single. If we start distributing and forking it, there will be less developers who are involved working on the core but more packagers of their own distributions. Linux has faced that problem already, and I wouldn't like OpenSolaris to follow it that way.
