Sun continues its crusade to kill itself....30 Nov '07 - 01:45 by benr
You need to read this: An Open Letter to the OpenDS Community and to Sun Microsystems. OpenOffice has been ripped apart, now OpenDS, who knows what else is happening in other open source projects that Sun's involved in.
This kills me. I love Sun Microsystems and I'm just sitting here watching it rip itself apart piece by piece. Who is in control? Why has Sun continued to RIF many of its most valuable employees without having a clue. Someone posted in the comments the old and sad phrase: "Too Many Chiefs, Not Enough Indians." Its true, everyone knows it, every has known it for years and years and you don't have to be an employee to see and feel it effecting end customers.
Here is another old and tired phrase thats sadly applicable: STOP THE INSANITY!!!!!!!!
I an perhaps the most involved and long running member of the OpenSolaris project. I love Solaris, OpenSolaris, and Sun Microsystems.... but all of us involved must tread very carefully with wisdom, clarity, and a good measure of faith and hope.
Java is the killer of Sun. And it’s still killing.
Patrick Henry (Email) - 30 November '07 - 02:01In all fairness I believe that at the top Sun has truly changes it’s colors, it wants to be an Open Source company and participate in open communities. However cultural change takes time, it can take decades to change the culture of a company. Let’s just hope more in the “middle management” rank begin to join the clue train…
trochej (Email) - 30 November '07 - 14:13I’ve been investigating. There’s an HR dimension that I can’t discuss in public, but the substantive issue for the FOSS community is unrelated to the reduction-in-force layoff the employees in question were unfortunately subjected to.
So far I have found that the substantive issue seems to be about the fact a unilateral change of the governance was made1 by Sun employees, without involving either the community or Sun management. All Sun’s representative did was ask for that unauthorised change to be reverted. We might argue over the actual governance later, but the issue now is that the change was made. It was wrong for it to be made without consultation, and Sun was in my view right to ask for it to be reverted (that’s all that has happened BTW2).
It’s good to side with the underdog (that’s where I always start from in my investigations) but in this case a former employee with a grudge is making things look as bleak as possible.
I am not privy to the misbehavior alleged by Neil, but I certainly know the history of OpenDS and its governance. I respect Sun and the vision set forth by Jonathan, but your facts are wrong and bashing the previous leadership is no way to set the record straight.
Right now it still looks from the data-points I have been able to gather that management approval beyond the level of the people RIFed was not obtained before Sun was written out of the governance, and that the request to revert to the unaltered version was reasonable. If you have data, please write in confidence to ombudsman (at) sun.com.
And it escapes me why you’d find it remarkable I take an interest when Neil launches such an attack against Sun. I’m here to fix things like this since “open letters” and debate-via-the-media rarely help much.
Finally, what has been happening to the entire financial IT industry on the East Coast (RIFs) has reached the West Coast.

“When I was in medical school, there was an adage: ‘Every drug has at least two effects—the one you intended and the one you didn’t,’ ” says Harvard medical school professor Jerry Avorn, M.D., author of Powerful Medicines: The Benefits, Risks and Costs of Prescription Drugs. “It’s important to remember that new drugs can be harmful in new ways.”
