RE: No worries JS.
Hi Matt. I've taken time off from being God in order to straighten out a few innaccuracies in your post. First of all, we don't sell that "open sauce" stuff you mentioned, in fact we don't sell any kind of condiment. We sell proprietary software with licence fees befitting my status as Computing God - except Solaris, of course, which no-one wants anymore so we have to give it away for free. I think you may be confused becasue we did try selling a kind of Linux a looooong time ago, but it was even more unpopular than Solaris, and by then our jealousy had led other Linux vendors such as Red Hat becoming upset both by our superiority, and by our constantly smiling to their faces but then telling all and sundry that their product was cr*p. So we left that Linux stuff to HP, who seemed quite happy to get down and dirty with all those nasty OSF commoner types. We also sell someone elses storage, some servers from some other people, and a few of our own designs from other companies we bought. Well, actually we sell a lot less of other peoples' stuff, but then red is my fave colour so that's just fine.
One of the occurences in my life you will hear me mention most often (and thrillingly told it is too, I must modestly admit) was when my heavenly invulnerability was confirmed by my surviving the Amtrack train crash in Chase, Maryland, back in 19BC (that's 19 years Before CEO, or 1987 in mere mortal terms). Ever since I have delighted in catastrophic crashes - well, like our share-price. In fact, it is this divine ability to recognise the holiness of an idea that has led me to push our market position downwards in the (righteous) belief that Steve Jobs (a lesser god) will see fit to ask us to merge our two companies so he can benefit from my Divine Leadership, and then we can proceed to bless the iPhone with Niagara and our customers will be able to make sixteen calls at a time (people do that, don't they?). Of course, we will still work on the Rock CPU, and when the time is right we may even release it if you peasants show correct deference.
Anyway, I hope this has cleared your mind and set you back on The Path To True Enlightenment (aka Solaris, Java, and MySQL), and there will be no more of this nonsense about "peon source" or whatever it was you were on about.
