An initial pilot program of Nexenta – GNU/Solaris has been announced and the initial trials are limited to Ubuntu developers and the entire Debian community. Sun Microsystems recenly opened the Solaris Kernel under the CDDL license, which allows any one to build custom Operating Systems. So a new Debian GNU/Solaris distro has been created. It is great to see how the open source community works together.
Also see my previous post about Belenix – a live Solaris CD by a group in India.
