Illumos founder Garrett D'Amore looks toward the future of that project
given the changes at Oracle. "So, by their actions here, Oracle may be forcing Illumos to 'fork', which was always a prospect, even if not one I cherished. But with the backing of the innovators I know who are with us, I think we have a chance to actually be the premiere foundation for SunOS derived technology. Oracle may be investing more into Solaris, but if the best and brightest have left for greener pastures and are contributing to Illumos, then I think we'll have the 'best' investments in the base. Following Oracle's lead when the brightest minds have already left looks less and less desirable by the moment.
