Shining Sun

If there is one company who has turned around from being on the brink of total irrelevance to something of a major player in the technology sector, it is Sun Microsystems. Early last year, when rumours started to seep out that they would embrace open source, I was skeptical at best and really did not buy any of it. Now, in March 2005, Sun has been has been something of a revelation and an evolving pleasant surprise to watch out for. I have not studied the CDDL nor have I taken a look at the spanking new Solaris 10. In any case, I am looking forward to how Redhat reacts to its turf being trampled upon and more of Sun president Jonathan Schwartz's controversial opinions on his blog.
