Mind that age!

This blog post is 16 years old! Most likely, its content is outdated. Especially if it's technical.

"In an open letter to Sun, Eric S. Raymond, president of the Open Source Initiative, attacks Sun's tight control of Java, even though the firm has recently made positive comments on open source software."

A good news article about why "Eric S. Raymond"n:http://www.catb.org/~esr/ thinks Sun should go open source with the Java programming language. This next thing struck me:

"Open source is hardly a zero revenue model; ask Red Hat, which had a share price over triple Sun's when I just checked," wrote Raymond.
