OpenIndiana based on Illumos is almost here!!

Finally, great news on the OpenIndiana and Illumos front:

So, this means the first official development release of OpenIndiana based on Illumos is imminent, the latter being the first truly open-sourced, community-driven Solaris-derived kernel. This is big, big news, as many of Sun Microsystems’ brightest engineers have worked on Illumos via the companies they have since joined (ex-Oracle…) that are actively using Illumos for their business.

Seriously, I can’t wait 🙂
