Leaving Oracle but not Solaris
This is probably one of the most difficult entry I have ever written. I have decided to leave
my job at Oracle. Don't have a forward destination yet but I intend to take sometime thinking
about it before I take the next step. I am leaving Oracle but I will still be involved
with Solaris and OpenSolaris in some form or the other. Having spend 14 years writing million+
lines of code and architecting some of the most complex subsystems, I don't intend to
just walk away.
The last 2-3 days have been a very emotional journey for me. I thought I was a very strong
willed person but it was amazing how many times I came close to tears when so many people
stopped by. All I can say is that I am so grateful that the community feels that I had
done something useful (both personally and professionally) for Solaris. The journey has
been nothing but wonderful and I will surely miss everyone. But I have learned one thing
in last several years - to not say goodbye ever because our paths will cross again!!
Best of luck to everyone in the Solaris community who help it to be the best operating
system on the planet and especially to the people who help write it. Keep the flag
flying!! With Oracle, Solaris will reach more places ...
I think I will lose access to this site once I leave Sun/Oracle so I will continue writing
on my wordpress blog
