State Of OpenIndiana

Filed under
OS

When Oracle announced it was discontinuing the development of OpenSolaris, there was shock among the free Unix community. OpenSolaris was popular and had a very loyal user-base and good support from developers, internal and community. A fork of OpenSolaris was quickly announced. A fork of the kernel would become what is known as Illumos. And the operating system would become OpenIndiana, which would use the Illumos kernel.

Let’s fast forward to today and we have a complete Illumos based, OpenSolaris forked Unix distribution-OpenIndiana.

What is the problem?

The primary problem that lies within OpenIndiana’s development is the disunity and disconnect between the project’s leaders, developers and users. The philosophy of what OI should be, is there.
