“the coming open source evolution”, Sun and Oracle

Reading the Sun Inner Circle Newsletter once in a while, I found the recent issue to be, well, pretty enthusiastic about promoting the idea of Open Source software, especially talking about OpenOffice and several others of Suns own open source projects / products:

Sun has been involved in free software for a long time. The company was founded on open source. We took a general-purpose processor and what would have been called an open source operating system and combined them to create the low-cost workstation. Bill Joy was a key figure in the formation of the free and open source software movement.

Indeed. Agreed. And yet, I thoroughly hope words will be followed by deeds and the “new”(?) company Sun might eventually become after being acquired by Oracle will manage to play up to these commitments…
