It takes a village

In order for OpenSolaris to do well, here's an article that points to IDC's assessment on what it will take to really be an effective force in the open source world.

See:

IDC says OpenSolaris should do as Java does

Here's a quote:

 Sun could establish a strong community 
 supporting its product, and this
 community could increase interest in 
 Solaris and Sun's hardware products. 
 Sun has been able to build a strong 
 community around the Java platform 
 (based on Sun's original Java products, 
 which were widely adopted by many vendors)
So, in order for OpenSolaris to do well, it needs to follow what Java technology has done. That's the ticket! Easy downloads, online docs, big conferences in San Francisco (with a video gamers lounge), and a Micro Edition that fits on cell phones. Wait-a-minute... Solaris on a cell phone... Hm... If I only had dtrace right now on the J2ME phone I'm working on! That would be cool! :-)
