OpenSolaris became Solaris 11 Express and later Solaris 11. Various employees did not device to remain with Oracle and left for various other Solaris, GNU, and Linux based communities. A new Open Source code base, based upon OpenSolaris - called Illumos was born. Various distributions have been formed based upon OpenSolaris and Illumos code bases - the latest being OmniOS.
