Tough Changes Long Under Consideration

The 'Warrior' Within Jonathan Schwartz: "McNealy says Schwartz wasted little time in executing tough changes that had long been under consideration. Case in point: Schwartz made the call to open the source code for Sun's Solaris operating system. 'It was very controversial, but there was no teeth gnashing, no hand-wringing. He just did it.'" -- Peter Burrows, BusinessWeek

Yah, I'll bet it was controversial among the execs. It was controversial at various levels of the company, but there were also many people who believed in the project years before it was even close to opening. There were some real long term thinkers involved with this from the very beginning. Lots of short term stuff, too. :) All good.
