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."

Yes, I did read the link, and have since the beginning of the SCO trial. I've read every stinking last piece of it. Briefs, motions, filings, exhibits, financial statements, and so on.

If you want to wave SUN's flag and hold them harmless, so be it. I still cannot, and will not, say SUN is trustworthy until they clear the air about SCO. If you don't like that, then I can't help you.

And I never screamed at the top of my lungs. And you're the one saying grand conspiracy. All I see is business manuvering, which is why I said they didn't even need to apologize.
