OpenSolaris

At my previous company we were a heavy user of Solaris, and we also had a lot of legacy specific SCO systems as well. 3-4 years ago, some person (who shall remain nameless) was pushing Opensolaris as "the future", personally I thought the guy was way off base. He did deploy some of it, and it worked well, the problem would be the support and future for another player in the x86/64 market. There was no future, I saw it, but apparently other people in management didn't. I then read this article:

I love being right J

Sorry to see you go, but it's for the better. Oracle hopefully will invest more resources into Linux which it hasn't been doing as much since the Sun purchase.
