OpenSolaris lives! OpenIndiana announced
OpenIndiana is a continuation of the OpenSolaris operating system. It was conceived during the period of uncertainty following the Oracle takeover of Sun Microsystems, after several months passed with no binary updates made available to the public.
The project will be formally unveiled with an announcement next Tuesday.
OpenIndiana is part of the Illumos Foundation, and provides a true open source community alternative to Solaris 11 and Solaris 11 Express, with an open development model and full community participation.
Come along on Tuesday – either in person if you’re in London, or online – and see what OpenIndiana is about, then get involved. If you’ve got OpenSolaris 2009.06 machines you’ll really want to know about this.
