More than one person has asked me lately if it was true that I was going back to work for SUNW.
That's a good one. Let me deny it.
First of all I have a non-compete. Second, I would need to be promoted significantly above the middle management hell I remember it being. And finally, they haven't even approached me! So no, I am not going back to SUN, not today, I am sleeping in and playing video-games.
But seriously, "what would Marc Fleury do" at SUNW? It is a hardware company. I am a free software guy. On the positive side, last I ran into a SUNW exec was at the Churchill Club. The gentleman asked me how I recommended they license OSS java. I said "GPL it". They did, I am done, I will take the credit, and there is nothing left for me to do.
Ok here is one thing SUNW should do: buy Red Hat. Preferably at a premium and in time for my earnout. I will even give free integration advice.
Thank you very much, good night.
