OpenSolaris has a new web site, built using XWiki.
Matthew Aslett makes a bid to become the definitive index of community comment on the MySQL dimension of Oracle's attempt to buy Sun.
Brian Aker thinks dual licensing (or what Richard Stallman calls "selling exceptions") is bad for open source. I tend to agree with him.
