OpenSolaris: So close...

I posted earlier of my love for ZFS Dedup, and how I was experimenting with OpenSolaris as a new base-unix instead of FreeBSD, because FreeBSD is so far behind in the ZFS ports.

Well, I'm switching back. It's been a few months, and we still don't see any new OpenSolaris code. Will Oracle release a new OpenSolaris? There's talk about it being dumped. There's too many questions, so I have decided to side-line and wait - so I'm back to FreeBSD until I see an OpenSolaris 2010 - But it's quite possible we'll have FreeBSD Dedup before we have another solid OpenSolaris release.
