Filed under

According to Garret D'Amore, Illumos project leader, the recently launched derivative is beginning to diverge from OpenSolaris.

D'Amore has noted in his blog that he believes the last commit to Oracle's public repository for ON, the core of OpenSolaris, has been made.

D'Amore says"from here on out, Illumos and Oracle Solaris diverge" and that he is "very excited" at this move.
