And neither do I.  I think what really pisses me is the fact that weird 
Larry will just kill a perfectly good operating system, Solaris.

Infact - it makes me really angry.

And it's a trend too.  For example - I've never thought that JAVA would 
just be "ignored" for maintenance....

As Ellison goes further with the assimilation of SUN, he just assaults 
any community interest in the platform and applications.

I think most old Sun guys like me just resent him.

I'll just choose OpenIndiana or move towards Linux or the *BSD crowd.
