A review of 2010 and plans for 2011

2011 is coming down the road

The year 2011 is almost two weeks old, and by now you've probably read every other review/resolutions/plans blog post out there. Now you have time to read this one :).

But first of all: Apologies for not having blogged for weeks. I've been moving to a new home over the last two months, the holiday season took its toll and there were a few other personal and job projects that demanded my attention.

Now, normality (whatever it is) is starting to come back and I can start devoting more time to this blog again.

This blog is now one year old, although I had been blogging for more than five years before. Time to reflect, plan and flip some switches for the future.

Here's a quick recap of 2010, some plans and ideas for this blog, a call for feedback and hints to some other projects for 2011.

Lots of speculation about Solaris and OpenSolaris is happening right now, with an allegedly leaked email being the latest generator of buzz, rumors and troll-ism.

But is that any useful? No.

So let's cut through the shiitake, do some due diligence and focus on some real facts instead.

In this article, we'll check out some real and authoritative sources of Solaris direction, mainly John Fowler's recent webcast about Solaris 11. Then we'll see what our future opportunities as members of the Solaris community are, and close with some pointers to other opinions on Solaris 11.
