Still no GPL, which makes OpenSolaris uncompetitive and unattractive to some
developers.

Sun's 'Project Copy Linux' not a Linux copy

| Murdock also refused to talk about Sun's FISHworks project – billed as a
| NetApp killer.
|
| Sun has put some of its top Solaris engineers in charge of a
| software/hardware effort meant to create a solid network attached storage
| (NAS) appliance. The company demoed this project to analysts early this year,
| although it refuses to give reporters the same honor.
|
| We did track down Adam Levanthal, one of the FISHworks leads and co-authors
| of DTrace, at OSCON. He revealed that the product should ship early next year
| and that it includes some special sauce above Solaris for handling storage.
|
| "I'm not going to talk to you about it more than that," he said, rather
| bluntly.
|
| Why not just slap us in the face?
