The Solaris Ethos

Here’s a piece with many excellent quotes from Peter Tribble and James Eagleton — OpenSolaris one year on: Success or failure? Peter’s last quote is most important: “The project has — in my view anyway — been extremely successful in keeping to the original Solaris ethos while developing a strong OpenSolaris community.” That is exactly the balance we were shooting for while planning all this a few years ago. In fact during the pre-pilot feedback sessions with customers and developers, this was a common theme running through those conversations.
