Sun’s Open Source Contribution: $2 Billion, Dozens of Projects and Yes that includes Apache Derby

A nice spotlight on Open Source and Sun's contribution. Dan Roberts, Director of Marketing at Sun, chats with Simon Phipps, Sun’s chief open source officer.

"Did you know that Sun contributes more than $200 million per year of intellectual property to the open source movement, in dozens of open source projects? The company’s historical contribution tops $2 billion."

You can also find more about Sun's Free and Open Source initiatives at http://www.sun.com/software/opensource/

Java DB (Sun's supported distribution of Apache Derby) is one of the projects I'm proud to work on.
