Solar Eclipse

Oracle completed their takeover of Sun Microsystems last week, thus marking the end of a legendary brand. I always admired Sun for their "go to hell" attitude, their willingness to smack Bill Gates upside his head for the many & varied fuckups of Windows for Java, and the quality of their hardware and operating systems. I've made a few dollars on their stock over the years, too.

Now Sun is part of the feudal empire run by Oracle chairman and corporate daimyo Larry Ellison. I know Larry's very happy. I should probably send him a resume.
