Well, that's that, then. Solaris as we knew it is pretty much dead. I've suspected for a while now that Oracle's intentions regarding Solaris were not what the community, or us "old-school" Solaris sysadmins wanted or had hoped for.
In the last few months, Oracle have completely alienated and
scared off the community around OpenSolaris, killed any lines of
communication by clamping down on employee blogs and have ignored open
letters from highly influential and important community members begging
for any kind of information. They’ve forbidden Sun/Oracle employees
from heading up the Solaris user groups and booted the meetings out of
their buildings; turned Solaris 10 into a 90-day trial, and pushed back
the 2010.x release of OpenSolaris with no word as to it’s planned
release date, or even if it is being continued as a product. And now, in a final act of desperation, the OGB has essentially threatened to "shoot itself in the head".
