Isn't SchilliX related to OpenSolaris?
May the source be with you!

Yes, SchilliX is based on the SXCE (Nevada) SVr4 branch of Solaris.

This is explanation what SchilliX currently is (yes its complicated) from its author:

And OpenIndiana is based on Indiana and not on Solaris as Solaris is the non-free precursor of OpenSolaris. To be more precise, OpenSolaris is the 'open' Solaris base. The development code name for Solaris 10.1 (renamed to Solaris 11 at the end of 2005) is 'Nevada' and the source base (that is similar to what FreeBSD covers with their code base) is called 'ON' (Operating and Networking). Before Oracle launched their recent closed-source fork from OpenSolaris, the OpenSolaris base was called 'ONNV' by Sun. ONNV in an abbreviation for 'Operating and Networking Nevada'. SchilliX-ON is a continuation project for that code base and SchilliX is based on SchilliX-ON."

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.
