Scott McNealy and Sun Rays

Scott McNealy was one of the four founders of Sun Microsystems and for a long time he served as a CEO.  I always had a very positive feeling about him when I was a Sun employee. I've seen him a couple of times in real life during several events and I liked his charisma and humor.

During the Sun days Scott McNealy was a big promoter of Sun Rays, it was the ultimate example of "The Network is the Computer".

He still is a big fan of Sun Rays. In a recent article on the GIGAOM website (a series of articles called "12 tech leaders’ resolutions for 2012") Scott McNealy said the following about Sun Ray: I’m always pining away for my old Sun Ray. I hate my Mac. I hate my phone. The amount of time our family spends on administrating this stuff is outrageous. The horror of the expenses we pay to keep upgrading the client! I had the same Sun Ray in my home office for seven years. It’s the best computing in the world–absolutely stateless, data-less, super-thin. It is still the right answer, and we’ll get there someday.

If you are a frequent reader of this blog then you know that the Sun Ray technology is embedded in the Oracle Desktop Virtualization Solution (Oracle VDI). And needless to say I fully agree (uuhhh not fully, I like my Mac) with the above statement from Scott McNealy :-)
