OpenSolaris cancelled, to be replaced with Solaris 11 Express

Today I read a bad notice, OpenSolaris is dead!

Alasdair Lumsden: This memo was circulated internally within Oracle (and subsequently leaked). Basically, the open source development model has now been axed and OpenSolaris is officially now dead. A very sad day indeed… read the entire notice here.

Despite I did never used OpenSolaris to work, there is a lot of fun features the OpenSolaris brought to OpenSource operating system community, like ZFS and Dtrace.
