I can't always write from everyone's perspective, so I try to stick to my own. I know less about running a company than I do about what makes life easier, more enjoyable and more productive for developers not working for sun. As the other commenter noted, its easy to criticize a failed business and point at a move we disagree with and blame it for the failure.

I'd suspect ( with the previous cavat that I know very little about business), that much like in medicine some treatments will cure a man with one disease that would kill a man with another. But that hardly means the treatment is wrong for every patient.
