Debian GNU/kOpenSolaris
23rd July 2005

Debian GNU/Linux is obvious, but there is also Debian GNU/Hurd, Debian GNU/NetBSD and Debian GNU/kFreeBSD. And now, someone wants a Debian GNU/kOpenSolaris.

Who wants a Debian GNU/Windows?

The license that governs OpenSolaris is the CDDL, and apparently it was already discussed on the debian-legal mailing list, with the conclusion that it is probably DFSG-free but it has some warts.

Will we see an OpenSolaris based Debian distribution? As usual, only if someone will bother building it. Just raising ideas to the blogosphere doesn't achieve much.
