Interviews

During the week, Unixmen exclusively interviewed Illumos Founder, Garrett D’Amore. Garrett has worked for the likes of Sun Microsystems and Nexenta. Upon the announcement of Oracle closing development of OpenSolaris, he founded the Illumos project which would become a continuation of the OpenSolaris kernel. We asked him to shed some light on what he thinks of the current situation with OpenIndiana, the open-source desktop project which would continue on from where OpenSolaris stopped so suddenly.

Unixmen: When you first received word that Oracle was discontinuing development of OpenSolaris, what prompted you to found the Illumos project and become involved with OpenIndiana?

Garrett: I think you’re confused about Illumos vs. OpenIndiana. Unfortunately, many people have the same confusion, which is one of the problems I foresaw when the OI project was first described to me.
