OpenSolaris free CDs halted

Filed under
OS

Oracle has stopped the free OpenSolaris CD shipping program. A posting on the OpenSolaris website discussion mailing list by Oracle's Derek Cicero says the related links and icons have been removed from the opensolaris.org site.

The move will do little to reduce the tension in the OpenSolaris community over the future of OpenSolaris under Oracle. On Tuesday a "Call for action" was made on the OpenSolaris Governance Board mailing list. Suggestions over forking OpenSolaris, in the event Oracle were to close off the code, were made in comments, but it appears that currently the OpenSolaris Governance Board are getting very little information.

rest here




re: OpenSolaris

Only a blind Amish person couldn't see that one coming.

Pucker up and kiss OpenSolaris GOODBYE!!!!!!!!!!!
