Sun wants it back. All of it.

Posted by Bill Bradford on Apr 1, 2008

As seen on Jonathan Schwartz’s weblog:

But now that we’ve firmly established our reputation for open source leadership, I’m very worried there’s no more controversy to be had. There’s too much trust in the system, and too much clarity around our strategic intent. So it’s getting tougher and tougher to kick up a storm – and we can’t very well spend a billion dollars or change our ticker symbol every time we want to generate a headline. Now can we?

So today I’d like to unfurl the second chapter of our strategy.

We want you to give it all back. You couldn’t possibly believe we’d let you keep it, did you?

We specifically request that all free software originally distributed by Sun Microsystems, related to software or microprocessors, including but not limited to source files, binaries, derivatives, extensions, applications, patents, patent applications, copyrights, ideas, thoughts, and derivative thoughts, along with any and all mirrors thereof, be returned immediately.

One response to “Sun wants it back. All of it.”
