"Good-bye OpenSolaris. It's been fun knowing you. Unfortunately for you, it's become all too clear that your new parent company, Oracle doesn't want a thing to do with you.

"I predicted that Oracle, which is a Linux company, was going to let OpenSolaris die off by neglect, but most people disagreed with me. Folks insisted to me that Solaris was better than Linux and that Oracle would never let OpenSolaris die.

"Sorry folks, I may not be right a lot of the time, but I was right on this one. By April of this year, the OpenSolaris Governing Board had seen the handwriting on the wall. Or, to be more exact, they saw that Oracle wasn't even giving them the time of day."
