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."

RE: Come clean about SCO

One thing Sun needs to do is come clean about SCO and their involvement with them.

Pardon, what relationship with SCO? all I remember was the paying for some IP (probably relating to opensourcing Solaris) - I would hardly call giving SCO money in the single digits figures providing money for their war chest.

Contra to the conspiracy theories that exist; there is no covert relationship between SCO-Sun-Microsoft; The only relationship Microsoft has with Sun is the $2billion settlement which included $2billion cash plus access to Microsoft IP (as well as collaboration).
