MongoDB quits Solaris, wants to work on an OS people actually use


Not terribly significant, of itself.

There are people using MongoDB on Solaris/illumos; they're likely using their distro packages or building it themselves. And by the sounds of it, not paying a support contract. So those users become invisible.

A bigger problem is the relentless "everyone's abandoning Solaris" message being spread, which will tend to be self-fulfilling.
