Yeah, I think it will benefit the industry as a whole to have another
systems builder committed to offering an alternative to AMD and Intel,
but I didn't see anything in that web page about Open Solaris - it seems
that Oracle would be competing against its own unbreakable linux to
continue with Open Solaris development.

I'm hoping they do continue both Open Solaris and Virtual Box because as
much as I like VMware, Virtual Box works really well for me and I like
the price a lot better.
