Oracle and SUN Simon Phipps of Sun has responded to the recent criticism of Sun's openness, pointing out that even releasing information that they may already have costs a lot of money. "Jonathan asked me to look into this, to ensure we're pursuing an open path across all of Sun, not simply the software group. We take all input seriously, and we can't solve all problems for all parties, but we're committed to doing our best to faithfully engage with all the communities we serve, in the same spirit as the existing Open Source Ombudsman Scheme. With the support of my team and others in the community I'll try to build a new scheme that is fair and transparent."

I wish Mr. Phipps the very best but from my own experience dealing with him I cannot tell the public he succeded in improving much over the last 2 years. Maybe he will do better in the future. Yes, his job is difficult.

Going back to Theo and his comments on Sun: He is right on the money as far as I can tell...
