    It appears that Linus Torvalds has joined the OpenSolaris Community Advisory Board (CAB).

    In the meanwhile, rumors are circulating the CAB that Linus will be announcing a fork of the Linux kernel to Sun's CDDL. It's possible this is an April Fool's joke; however, I doubt it is.

    Well, it looked reasonable at first (these blogs are from well-respected people). If you look at Teer's blog and at the bottom in the commentary section, you'll see his admission to the April Fool's prank.
