This'll get a few people's backs up, I'm sure:

I'm not a Sun-watcher, so I can't comment, except to point out that  people say this kind of thing about large tech companies an awful lot. And Sun has an awful lot of cash...

The whole "IBM managed to turn around, they're the exception" concept made me chuckle: it wasn't until a long time aftre they'd turned around that many of the "industry commentators" realised it. Who knows, perhaps Sun is doing the same thing right now, and Scott et al are thinking "why can't they see how much its already changing?"

malloc will be first against the wall when the revolution comes...

The other company that comes immediately to mind is Novell.  They've been sitting in technology nowheresville (as far as I've seen) for quite some time, and now with recent acquisitions seem to be taking off again.

No reason why Sun couldn't do that as well, so I think he's being a bit overly harsh.  If Sun only had a few hundred million in the bank (or even up to a billion or so) he might have an argument.  But 10 billion...?  Seems a bit soon to be counting them out.

5 pages seems like a lot of text where everything he said basically comes down to the title of his article. All doom and gloom in repitition, but no in-depth info in there.

I'm quite happy. Hopefulle this will (not)  turn their head towards open source. Either they fail to utilize or they blame it.

IBM is my company if I had to pick one. Now I only want to see  C# die and then we can replace these shitty C++ variants with real functional languages.
