Even after such expertise and so many achievements, Sun Microsystems made one wrong business move after another. After the dot com bubble burst a decade ago, Sun was badly affected; it had to make desperate survival attempts by shutting down their facilities one after another. Finally, Oracle saved Sun the embarrassment and bought it when it was undergoing prolonged losses. The end of an era was marked, and here is a tribute to the legend.
Those who have been an absolute favorite of the company have regularly visited Sun.com and will wonder what happens to the website. Well, the domain will be decommissioned on June 1st and the SDN will be moved to the SysAdmin and developer community of the OTN (Oracle Technology Network).
The blogs at the blogs.sun.com subdomain will be moved to a new location at Oracle. However, two comments on the announcement page tell us more than that.
Oracle willingly saying, “we don’t care” about this history of work that exists in the sun.com domain is yet another indication of the sad end of a real legacy of our computing history.
