@P567KiX-1zjf - Yep. The last time I dealt with Solaris was ..... hmmmmmm. A long time ago.
You guys still don't understand. There is no market for Solaris. Get over it. Start learning Linux asap.
The solaris folks are expecting another layoff after oow ! they are already cherry picking who can help releasing patch bundles. So solaris 11.4 will never see the light.
They are naming it like the new iphone
( iphone x)
So expect the new polished and amazing "Solaris X"
The next big thing !!
I think they should just continuously deliver it.
2 options ..
either completely kill it and take some crucial stuff into 11.3 patches
take more time for stabilizing it and release bit late with current resources (more unlikely)
Everyone in solaris team is looking out including the two vps. As sparc is dead they already reduced the scope of 11.4 and they may do a cosmetic release that doesn't worth anything. ES thinks the new college grads can do Linux BMC better than the unix veterans.
Many Solaris engineers were hit this round. Very curious to see if 11.4 ever sees the light of day.
