Ummm S11 can upgrade from Opensolaris... maybe OpenIndiana could upgrade
from Solaris 11.. so the vendor lockup gets killed... This would be good and
bad for Oracle, bad because people can free themselves from the heavy load
of pricing whenever they want without the need of starting from the scratch
(trap broken), and good because probably people would perceive less risk on
adopting the expensive Solaris 11. I know about a few startups afraid of
starting "delux" because if they need to grow their IT infrastructure before
having a decent revenue, costs would increase too fast and risk increases...
but if Openindiana would upgrade Solaris 11 they could pull back whenever
they like without the need of rebuilding their systems... and go back again
to Oracle whenever they are ready to pay  :-P

There is already a value in being able to upgrade in one direction, why not

Just some twisted thinking.
