The problem with SUN Microsystems

December 19, 2008 at 5:33 pm (Uncategorized) (, )

I believe they do not have the FOSS philosophy in their DNA (http://groups.google.com/group/CodeForFreedom/browse_thread/thread/6dbf71e6f2c61bb4)

UPDATE: The guy does not work at SUN, so my comment on SUN’s DNA is not substantiated thus. But, from what I have heard in interviews and read on the net, SUN had a pretty conservative policy in opensourcing and are doing it simply to fit in now.

    Open-sourced since the 1980s and a core part of Sun’s “DNA”.

    I think the gentleman on the discussion link could have been more polite. Maybe he was irritated due to the wrong submissions he might have received.

    But still, it is not advisable to be so brazen to the community. He could have kept his emotions in check and simply pointed the users to the appropriate links. One should remember, that community is king for open source initiatives, and such impatient outbursts do no good.

    It is not advisable to be repulsive and rude to the community, else nobody will bother to participate again !

    Aayush.
