ApacheCon: Sun and Open Source

sun-microsystems.jpg John Fowler, Sun’s Software CTO, spoke about Sun’s commitment to the Open Source movement.

Nothing earth-shattering. Usual corporate pitch about how we love the O-S movement, and look how much wonderful stuff we’ve opened up. Java Community Process 2.5 sounds kinda interesting.

What was more interesting was what Fowler didn’t say. I didn’t hear the words Sparc or Solaris mentioned once.
