The final verdict is in: OpenSolaris is no more.

In what is supposedly a leaked internal memo to Oracle staff, the adoptive parent company of Sun’s OpenSolaris had announced the fate the project’s (and binary release’s) future. That is, they will support it no more outside of CDDL’d package updates for future Solaris (i.e. Solaris 11) releases.

Woah, It Looks Like Oracle Will Stand Behind OpenSolaris

http://www.phoronix.com

Since Oracle acquired Sun Microsystems last year, the future of the Solaris and OpenSolaris operating systems have been called into question especially as the OpenSolaris 2010.1H release was missing and has been that way for months now with no official communication from Oracle. A new OpenSolaris release hasn't come in more than a year and we still are left wondering if or when it will arrive.

OpenSolaris back on track.

http://blog.hydrasystemsllc.com

It would appear that the OpenSolaris project is back on track. This is a bit long overdue. The acquisition of Sun by Oracle left a few projects in questionable states. It was unknown as to whether Oracle would continue supporting these open source projects. OpenSolaris was included in that list.

The worst thing Oracle can do

http://blogs.zdnet.com

One of the most appealing aspects of journalism is that, sometimes, you get to give billionaires like Larry Ellison some free advice. Our story begins late last month, after I suggested here that Oracle was “taking OpenSolaris back.”

OpenSolaris and ZFS: The beauty of snapshots.

http://blog.hydrasystemsllc.com

Two days ago, I ran through a long needed image update to the OpenSolaris 2010.03 preview. I was updating through the pkg update manager from build 129 to build 134. So when I say, it was much needed, I wasn’t kidding. Anyway, after over 1 GBytes of updates was completed, a new boot environment (BE) was created with the native ZFS snapshot feature and I shut down the PC for the night.
