That's hardly fresh news: OpenIndiana was first mentioned here four years ago. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...8/#post4093278

OpenIndiana hasn't had much as of late. The last release was over a year ago.

You may wish to check out DysonOS. http://osdyson.org/projects/dyson/wiki

There has been a little movement I think. I'm posting this from oi_151.1.8 x86 on a live usb connected wirelessly to my phone.

OpenSolaris had the potential to be a competitor with other UNICES out their as well as the BSDs and Linux, especially in the open-source arena. Oracle is just a misguided monstrosity that doesn't understand anything but itself and profit margins.

I'm glad OpenIndiana took up the reigns and continued onward, but the lost of having a major backer is one that isn't good.

Solaris 11.2 isn't looking too bad though. 4Front OSSv4 and Nvidia still support it actively.

Yup, new release 03.30.15. Downloaded, will try it out when I get home. Good to have another UNIX system (Solaris) to work with, and still using Gnome2.

Surprised they've held onto 32-bit support for this long. Although, I'm sad to see that go. All my machines are 32-bit now. :-( Seems newer machines just don't last as long as the older ones. All my 64-bit machines have had critical hardware failures and died whereas my old 32-bit machines keep chugging along. Sigh.
