A Community Launch

Some really nice bits from IT Jungle — OpenSolaris Community Opens for Business (underline parts are me):

Sun Microsystems tried to stay out of the limelight as the OpenSolaris community launched itself….

Taking Solaris open source is not a last ditch effort by Sun to save itself, as many of Sun’s competitors might have us all believe. It is as much Sun returning to its roots in the open source community from which it was spawned as IBM and Hewlett-Packard embracing of Linux were effort for them to actually grow some roots and gain some cred in the increasingly open source world.

The Sun blogs announcing OpenSolaris were swamped today….

Exactly.
