Scott has a great summary of Sun’s corporate culture in 12 words. During his presentation at Oracle OpenWorld 2009, he ended a list about Sun’s innovations with his “proudest innovation”:
“Kicked Butt, Had Fun, Didn’t Cheat, Loved Our Customers, Changed Computing Forever”
Working at Sun was a blast. I joined in March 1990 and worked there until it was acquired by Oracle in January 2010. Thanks to everybody that made it possible, starting with Scott, who infused his principles into the corporation.
