"It is kind of strange to us to have Sun suddenly be the perfect example of openness."
Yeah, Sun is awesome!
They released OpenSolaris, ZFS, DTrace, etc under open source. Gave us OpenOffice.org, made UltraSPARC CPU hardware open source.
Donated servers, joined Linux and OASIS foundation.
Have OpenFirmware open source. Released Java under GPL.
I love Sun!
