Sun's Culture: Going

May 13, 2010 14:13:13.000

I'd say that this is a pretty clear sign that Oracle intends to quash a lot of Sun's old culture and make it more sales oriented - a quote from Ellison:

The underlying engineering teams are so good, but the direction they got was so astonishingly bad that even they couldn't succeed," said Ellison. "Really great blogs do not take the place of great microprocessors. Great blogs do not replace great software. Lots and lots of blogs does not replace lots and lots of sales.

That's a pretty hard jab at old "give it away and make it up in volume" Schwartz there. It's really too bad they had to pay that idiot off as part of the acquisition; based on his management skills, he should have been paying Oracle...
