Project OpenIndiana Has Been Detailed
Phoronix: Project OpenIndiana Has Been Detailed
Last week we reported on a new OpenSolaris derivative project would be announced next week called Project OpenIndiana and would seek to leverage Illumos, the recently announced OpenSolaris fork of its source-code now that Oracle killed off the official public development of OpenSolaris. Yesterday afternoon Project OpenIndiana was publicly announced...
This is quite interesting. It looks as if killing off the project has had the opposite effect from what we all know was oracle's intention... now rather than having just sun developing it, it has forked off in a hundred directions and has quickly escaped any possibility of control.
Don't you just love open source? Trying to kill it off causes it to grow even faster.
Its a cancer... X.x

No one's yet said Solaris would be dead. It's Oracle's project and is probably doing just fine. OpenSolaris, on the other paw, is dead.
