From Computerworld:

As the chief open-source officer at Sun Microsystems Inc., Simon Phipps has been busy in recent months with various open-source initiatives. The company released OpenSolaris, the open-source version of its Solaris 10 Unix operating system, last year, and more recently unveiled plans to make its Java programming language open-source (see "Sun says open-source Java possible in 'months'"). In an interview with Computerworld, Phipps last week talked about Sun's upcoming open-source strategy and about what he called the incorrect view that Sun isn't fully committed to open-source software. Phipps, who joined Sun in 2000, has worked in IT for more than 20 years as a programmer, engineer, systems analyst and strategist for various companies, including IBM.
