Sun continues its crusade to kill itself….

Posted on November 30, 2007

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.
