The Second Sighting

The ObservatoryTwo years ago we started The Observatory shortly after the first release of OpenSolaris hit the streets. Since then we've published over 200 entries to which we've received almost 1000 comments and we've consistently been a top 20 blog at blogs.sun.com (or what we simply call bsc).


A couple of weeks back, John Fowler, EVP of Systems here at Oracle, delivered a strategy webcast where he outlined the future of Solaris. In that webcast, John finally announced what we've all been anticipating as we've watched the evolution of OpenSolaris - Solaris 11. And just last week at Oracle OpenWorld, Solaris 11 Express, which had only been a rumor up to this point, was finally officially announced.

To that extent, we also want to evolve The Observatory as we move forward with the future of Oracle Solaris. Therefore, we are making a slight adjustment to the tagline of this blog, moving from "A Closer Look at Using OpenSolaris" to "A Closer Look at Using Oracle Solaris", which will cover all Oracle Solaris technologies, including OpenSolaris (call me crazy like a fox, but I'm still running OpenSolaris 2009.06).

So, for the most part, the song remains the same, we just have an updated album cover.

A pity. May be a closer look at Illumos/OpenIndiana would be better?-)

This is one of the greatest \*Solaris blogs out there. Thanks for the hard work.

I wish all rebranding would have been so easy.
