Since Oracle finished its acquisition of Sun Microsystems, there have been many changes to the open-source projects that were once supported under Sun now being discontinued by Oracle and significant changes being made to the remaining open-source products. One of the open-source projects that Oracle hasn't been too open about their intentions with has been OpenSolaris. Solaris Express Community Edition (SXCE) already closed up last month and there hasn't been too much information flowing out about the next OpenSolaris release, which is supposed to be known as OpenSolaris 2010.03 with a release date sometime in March.
This morning on the zfs-discussion and indiana-discuss mailing lists there has been talk about what exactly is the future of OpenSolaris within Oracle. On the Sun domain, Oracle has already published a new web-page stating the end of service life for OpenSolaris.
