  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Sun
Sun Microsystems might have responded to my open letter of 12 Feb (Let Java Go) by at least sketching a rational business case for Sun's rather inconsistent stance towards the open-source community; that might have led to an interesting discussion. Instead, Sun seems to have elected to try to shoot the messenger. This is unfortunate and not what I expected. Nor is it likely to win Sun friends or influence people — after all, I was only writing what many people in the open-source community (including many of Sun's own employees) are thinking.
