Is Sun Solaris on its deathbed?

,----[ Quote ]
| inux is enjoying growth, with a contingent of devotees too large to be called

| on, or is it destined to be displaced by Linux altogether?

Sun: OpenSolaris 'pretty freaking amazing'

| 150,000 developers strong?
|
| Recently, Sun was touting the fact that more than 150,000 people have joined
| the OpenSolaris community. This is a pretty big number, particularly since
| the first release of OpenSolaris, dubbed 2008.05 and developed under the
| code-name "Project Indiana," only started shipping in May. That number
| doesn't tell the whole story.

| For one thing, it is not a measure of downloads. According to Dan Roberts,
| director of marketing for Solaris at Sun, the project allows completely
| anonymous downloads of OpenSolaris and also uses mirrors to distribute the
| code. OpenSolaris 2008.05 accounted for a couple hundred thousand downloads
| from the project's systems and maybe half again as many downloads on mirror
| sites.
