10 @ Sun

The title should say '10 @ Sun; 15 w. Sun'. When I joined Larsen and Toubro (L&T) in 1992, little did I know that those pizza boxes named SparcStation1 and Sun 3/xx (Motorola CPUs??) were made by a company that I was going to work for in about 4 years time. It was fun playing with SS1, writing Postscript programs that directly draws on the root window. The 3 series was running Sunview (I am sure quite a few would remember this GUI). My impression is that it was as fast and responsive as I it is currently on my Ultra 20 running GNOME ;)
It had been a roller coaster ride with Sun. I had moments of extreme happiness (probably the news that Sun stock was doing $120+) and also the complete opposite. I had been with Sun IT doing application development, later doing system administration with ITOps, and now am with engineering teams.
I greatly admire Sun as a company and cant think of working with any one else. I am afraid I will be too much biased to work any where else. The freedom that you get here is awesome. One has to work at Sun to believe and feel it. I am proud to be part of Sun's efforts, with open source in particular.
I hope I will be around to write '15 @ Sun' and '20 @ Sun'. Thanks to all my colleagues who has been making my life at Sun a great one. Thank you Sun.
