Goodbye SUNW.. hello JAVA!

In case you didn't hear.. Sun will be changing its stock ticker from SUNW to JAVA. I think it is a good idea.. It was a horse race between us and Starbucks. Looks like Sun won.

I wonder if the trend is going to be Apple is going to be MAC or more likely IPOD? Microsoft will be BUGS (oops).

OMGWTF this is the dumbest move ever.

First they tarred every single software product with the Java name, and now they've stained the entire company with it.

The word Java is despised all around the world for the slow, crappy, bloated mess it is.

The superb Solaris, UltraSPARC T chips, and server hardware are now obscured by the name of the worst ever software not created by Microsoft.

Maybe you haven't seen the movement in the Directory Server side of things. They are in the process of moving the C-based Directory Server to a complete rewrite in Java. We are actually getting better performance results in the Sleepycat Databases which are now Java-based.
