Sun Bear

Today I learned in India's Mysore Zoo that a bear has been named after Sun Microsystems. Or maybe not, but there definitely is a type of bear named "Sun Bear". Here's the proof:

I must say that Sun Bear is a bit odd looking, as if it has been open sourced one too many times, with multiple engineers adding the very best features without checking whether they work together or not... :-)

And here's a full description of Sun Bear. It eats fruit and lives in trees. Hmmm. Doesn't really fulfil my expectations of the concept "bear". Maybe this is post-modern bear, declawed and vegetarian.


Don't know about "Sun Bear", but "Sun Beer" would be really interesting ;) !

Hi, Geertjan, I hope you had a great time in Mysore (i hail from there) after the wonderful atmosphere of Sun Tech Days. Rohan, you should probably take a look here.

Hi Rohan, I must say 'Kingfisher' beer has met all my needs in that department. :-) Santhosh, yes I had a cool time (actually, a hot time, and ended up getting sunburnt very quickly).
