The Illumos Project Launches

If you use or are interested in OpenSolaris then you should check out the Illumos Project which was announced today by Garrett D’Amore of Nexenta. It’s an excellent development project which initially is working toward delivering a compatible, fully open sourced version of the closed OpenSolaris binaries.  At first I thought this was going to be a pure fork of OpenSolaris, however its not really a fork. The Illumos project t maintains close compatibility and functionally with it parent OpenSolaris code stream while granting more innovative development freedom and full community control.  All good things in my books.
