A toast to Sun and Oracle

It is customary to toast a new birth in champagne, but here I diverge with tradition.

To Sun and to the new Oracle/Sun combination, a toast in single malt scotch.
Salut !

22 years with Sun, much of its life and of mine, friendships, partnerships, global
relocations; Sun has been my home and an extended family.

From installing the first Sparc system in the southern hemisphere, a 4/280 server at Adelaide
University from magtape in my first week with the company to being blessed with the management
of the best team of Systems Support Engineers in the world. Five fabulous years in Grenoble,
France and as many years here in the UK. Sun has been there, always constant and constantly
changing, I will miss you.

I look forward with a glad heart to a dynamic new relationship, to creating and nurturing new
products, new friendships, partnerships and teams. I expect great things from this company
and I seriously doubt I will be disappointed.

Hey George, I remember seeing a room filled with these strange "Sun" systems just before I finished my CS degree at Adelaide Uni, way back in '86 or '87 I think. Interesting times ahead !

Regards from sunny Adelaide,
