Oracle and SUN The world hasn't been kind to Sun for quite a while now, but with the economic downturn, things are getting worse. Sun announced today that it will be laying off 18% of its workforce, or about 6000 people. In addition, it was announced that Sun's software chief Rich Green has resigned for reasons that were not stated, although as part of Sun's reorganization and cost cutting efforts, many departments are being merged, and the software division is being restructured and reorganized.

There is a silver lining to all things...

Many goverment agencies state local and federal still use outdated IT equimpent (DMVs to the IRS and FBI still use mainframes and outdated software)... its been a joke for years... while many harp for better roads.. (which i think is a joke ...pork spending) The goverment should think about more upgrades to its IT infrastructure. Its long over due and could benefit some like SUN.
