    Why bother with bringing KMS to something as meaningless and shitty as (Slow)laris when it's a lot more meaningful to help improve KMS on Linux. After all, crappy OS makers like BSD and Solaris will claim that their OS is for server just to explain their tiny usage share (even though it does not make sense). So they don't need modern graphics, that effort should go to Linux. it's for desktops, servers and everything else.

    Oracle should actually stop solaris, sue Openindianan and Openillinois to make them stop and then concentrate on Oracle Linux.

    Lost confidence

    Solaris used to be cool and interesting.
    But ever since Oracle bought it, I've lost all my interest in it.

    Oracle managed to mismanage everything.
    OpenOffice.org, MySQL, Java, Solaris, everything!

    So now I rather go with LibreOffice, MariaDB, C#/.NET and Linux instead.

    I only wish Linux got that functionality to run X.org Server had that funcionality to run without root privileges.

    What I told Matthieu was
    Our development branch for the next big release (i.e. what should become Solaris 12) is visible in our public hg repos on opensolaris.org, so you can see we've moved to Xorg 1.13 series and associated driver updates, and we're starting to look at Xorg 1.14, but have been waiting for the release candidates to begin before really working on it.
    I never said that was the final version we'd be looking at for Solaris 12, just that we're continuing to track upstream releases, so any assumptions you've made about release dates are unfounded (and no, I can't tell you what the real schedule is, sorry).

    It looks like Oracle may be preparing to release their own AMD Radeon kernel mode-setting (KMS) driver for introducing into Oracle Solaris 12...
