Enterprise Unix Roundup: OpenSolaris, Farm Team or Big League?

,----[ Quote ]
| To make it big in the enterprise, a platform must be on par with the Unix
| operating systems, the current meme says. And — interestingly — in this world
| view, OpenSolaris is not in the majors.

Does OpenSolaris Matter?

,----[ Quote
| I'm not sure.
|
| Sun first announced OpenSolaris in 2005 but they keep finding ways to
| announce 'first releases'. Yesterday was one such release.

Could Novell kill OpenSolaris?

,----[ Quote
| Sun's just opened its developer conference with the long-delayed launch of
| OpenSolaris, the open source version of its Solaris operating system. But
| after all this time, will it live?
|
| It's taken Sun since 2005 to turn OpenSolaris into a proper release, which
| Sun intends will stand alongside Solaris as a community operating system -
| like Fedora is to Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

MySQL has two masters now: the anti-swpatents MySQL and Sun...

Will the real MySQL please stand up?

,----[ Quote ]
| The question is around proprietary and/or closed extensions at the periphery
| of the database: add-on modules that add functionality, performance, or
| something, but which don't detract from the core database product. Yes, MySQL
| will offer these.
|
| So, in brief, MySQL will offer closed extensions to its 100 percent
| open-source database product. It will not add to global warming or other
| serious issues in the world today.

| Things haven't changed much at Sun. When Sun launched its
| OpenSolaris project in 2005 it used the Common Development and
| Distribution Licence - which is incompatible with the GPL - and
| some system code was not released.
