\* Marc in his speech passionately told, " I've been at Sun 16 years now, and we've never had a lineup like this. I could not be more optimistic about this year, next year, and the next several years."
\* Emphasizing on the importance of listening to the customer requirements, Andy Bechtolsheim said in his presentation, " For a change, we listened to these requirements." This invoked a round of applause from the audience.
\* Dave Douglas said, "You(audience) have a really bad reputation." He said that he was given an idea by his colleagues about the audience sending feedbacks, questions and comments instantly, about the presentations. He then added, "Wait a minute, I am the VP of Eco Responsibility, I can fix this." I heard a loud laughter and then I noticed this slide.
\* Jonathan Schwartz in his keynote showed his favourite photograph and told us, "I see a Solaris download even in Antartica. And we don't have a sales force there.
\* In his inspiring keynote, Schwartz pointed at the Servers kept to his right and said, " The most valuable asset is not this, but this (pointing to the audience)." Boy, doesn't such words invoke goose-flush in all. I am sure it did, else there wouldn't have been a heavy applause right after such a thunderous statement.
