However, after Oracle announced discontinuing Open Solaris, plans were made to fork the final version of the Solaris ON kernel allowing illumos to evolve into a kernel of its own. illumos is lightly led by founder Garrett D'Amore and other community members/developers such as Bryan Cantrill and Adam Leventhal, via a Developers' Council.
Unlike trillions of other existing distros, Void is not a modification of an existing distribution.It derives from Open Solaris, which in turn derives from SVR4 UNIX and Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD).illumos comprises a kernel, device drivers, system libraries, and utility software for system administration.Void's package manager and build system have been written from scratch.We use runit as the init system and service supervisor. Flatpak provides a simple and user-friendly way to run, update and create self-contained desktop applications.The name is derived from the Latin illuminare meaning "to enlighten," and "OS" for 'operating system'.
The original plan explicitly stated that illumos would not be a distribution or a fork.
(If this is a recurring problem, read this for other possible solutions.)   Try starting Firefox or Sea Monkey in Safe Mode (see the linked article for details).
If the browser starts when you run it in Safe Mode, it's likely that an extension or, in Firefox 4 and above, hardware acceleration is causing the problem.
See Problematic extensions and Firefox crashes#Extensions for more information.
Depending on your browser version and OS, Firefox or Sea Monkey may hang, crash, or simply fail to start because of a problematic plugin.
See Issues related to plugins for plugin locations and additional troubleshooting information, including how to disable plugins if your browser will not start.
