Feels like an odd marriage. While at Sun, Oracle was one of the more difficult partners with which i had to deal. Easier than IBM, but not exactly kindred spirits. Culturally they were poles apart. It will be really interesting to see what happens now that they are “one”.
The Sun Alumni mailing list has been hilarious for the last couple of days. no doubt some of the stories should never have been told… but i’m glad they were. Happy times. Feeling nostalgic for Silicon Valley days…
