Kommandeering Developers Everywhere

Sun Microsystems is the answer!

Unfortunately, the question continues to be, "What would happen if you took a bunch of bright engineers and surrounded them with somewhat less talent?"

Working with Sun Micro for the last decade, I'm not sure I've understood a press release of theirs since ${fill in horribly dated pop bad here like Ace of Base or Insane Clown Posse or Color Me Badd; it doesn't really matter if the dates match up} was popular.

This morning's bemusement was based on this article. Apparently, they're going to "make sure the JDS is prolific on all Linux distributions." Ok. I hope my desktop is prepared.

In case you're one of the 98% of this planet that can't figure out what JDS is, please review this link. It's obviously a Linux distro or a desktop manager on top of a linux distro or software on top of a desktop manager on top of a linux distro. Either way, we know it's a "comprehensive enterprise desktop software solution." Clear now?

SuSE backend + Gnome + Mozilla + Java + Looking Glass + Some Sun Code (tm)+ Star Office = Prolific.

I hope I'm not risking any lawsuits for giving away this formula. And they want this all to be prolific. Sun does quite a bit of good, but when will they stop wandering around in the desert?
