OpenSolaris is (you guessed it) dead.

Actually, given the plans for a fork, and the recent description of the upcoming release of Solaris 11 – there wasn’t much point in keeping up pretenses.  Nevertheless, a memo was “leaked” over the weekend.  There is a link to it over at the Inquirer.

Oracle kills open solaris – The Inquirer

The Oracle executives said the firm will now release a developer edition of Solaris 11 as “Solaris 11 Express” with optional support service, by the end of the year. Customers on older Open Solaris releases will be “encouraged” to migrate to the new Express platform although it is not clear how this will be accomplished.
