20 Dec 2011 Video: The Rise & Development of Illumos [25110]
Bryan Cantrill VP, Engineering, Joyent, Pulls Back the Curtain (1hr)

The video of Bryan's talk is now available. He is a great speaker and he adds much to the slide deck. Warning: some of his remarks are quite frank.

The Illumos project is the fully open community fork of the OpenSolaris operating system lead by Garrett D'Amoreat of Nexenta.

Joyent VP for Engineering Bryan Cantrill colorfully details "Fork Yeah! The Rise and Development of illumos" in his presentation that answers the question "WTF is illumos?" in the following way:

An open source descendant of OpenSolaris, which itself was a branch of Solaris Nevada which was the name of the release after Solaris10, and was open but is now closed, and is itself a descendant of Solaris2.x, but it can all be called "SunOS5.x" -- but not "SunOS4.x" --"(that's different).
