Submission + - R.I.P. OpenSolaris 2005-2010->

mysidia writes: Last month, on July 14th, it was mentioned that the OpenSolaris governing board issued an ultimadum to Oracle. It turns out that Oracle continued to ignore requests to appoint a liason after the OpenSolaris governing board's demands. This morning, the OpenSolaris governing board unanimously passed the resolution to dissolve itself.

Source code changes are no longer available, and It would appear that OpenSolaris and community involvement in the development of Solaris have been killed as rumored.

A recent article on slashdot discussed a "Spork" of OpenSolaris, Illumos. Perhaps now, this will have a chance of becoming a true fork.
