    1. John Havard says:

      After remembering that BerkeleyDB is still doing fine I came to the conclusion that Oracle probably won’t do much evil. Somehow, he’ll turn OpenSolaris into a self-funding project, but with an ugly Oracle web design.

    2. Anysystem says:

      hope this updates will be coming with some new enhancements and features.
