OpenSolaris Futures



There were some concerns expressed here about the future of OpenSolaris at Oracle.
Turns out, Dan Roberts, Director of Solaris and Studio Product Management, spoke about it recently at a recent OpenSolaris meeting and his comments were picked up here. Please read the article if you'd like to know more, but the gist of it is:
"Oracle will continue to make OpenSolaris available as open source, and Oracle will continue to actively support and participate in the community." Dan did strike a cautionary tone about expecting everything to be like it was before, saying in effect that: "There may be some things we choose not to open source going forward. It's important to understand the plan now is to deliver value again out of our IP investment, while at the same time measuring that with continuing to deliver OpenSolaris in the open."
Needless to add, Studio will follow OpenSolaris lead and will continue to be available with it.

Not sure but looks like a spam. Dont see what "Funny" pertains to, in the posting above. Wonder if I should delete the comment. I've noticed other spams lately here.
