R.I.P. openSolaris

Some time ago I wrote a blog entry titled openSolaris - Dead and Buried. At the time I hoped the situation wasn't quite that serious, as I was still hoping to use openSolaris on my desktop at work instead of the Microsoft rubbish we are given by my employers.

Unfortunately, it has turned out that the situation was every bit that serious. According to an internal Oracle memo that was leaked to the openSolaris mailing list, there will be no future releases of openSolaris, including 2010.05 or later previously planned releases.

Too bad.
