Very few public statements have been made by Oracle executives, specially regarding OpenSolaris. The community is arguing about the difficulties of forking the code base when most (if not all) of the developers are employed by Oracle. Now Oracle wants the community to prove that open source can be made profitable. What arguments the Slashdot crowd could provide to convince Oracle about that ?
