Sun is the greatest and most generous Opensource Company on the planet!

Oddly, it is the 1st Aniversary of the EU's publication of their report, "Economic impact of open source software on innovation and the competitiveness of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) sector in the EU". In this report, they identified Sun as the single largest corporate doner of open source code in the world. [.pdf...] Sun had contributed over three times the man hours as the second place company, IBM. This finding was before Sun open sourced JAVA.
