Do you really think that Sun did this out of the goodness of their heart? Not a chance. They fought the release of Java and the JVM for a decade or more. The point of Java was to have something that would not require MS Windows. Write once, run everywhere. It never made that claim real, and it failed to kill Microsoft. But if you think that they releases Java for the good of mankind, I have a bridge to Brooklyn that I'll gladly sell you.

The Brooklyn Bridge goes from Manhattan to Brooklyn within New York City. For over 100 years, con men and crooks have offered to sell the Brooklyn Bridge to the gullible.

I don't own the Brooklyn Bridge, but if you want to give me money, I'll take it.

Sun did not put Java out in public for the purpose of greater peace and kindness. They did it for money. Period.

Its obvious for anyone to make money with technology, but making it OpenSource ( 'm not getting reason behind making it open source)
what i thought was , they were very kind, humble Human Beings who belived in technology for all......

Excellent question.

Microsoft has 93,000 employees worldwide and annual revenue of $58.437 billion. Oracle (after acquiring Sun Microsystems) has 101,950 employees worldwide and annual revenue of $23.252 billion. Thus, each Microsoft employee represents $628,000 of revenue, and each Oracle employee represents $228,000 of revenue; making a Microsoft employee nearly 3 times as valuable as an Oracle employee.

But the question is really about your individual contribution. To set yourself apart, you need to offer more than expertise or experience. You need to offer something tangible to the bottom line. For example, if you're willing and able, you might insist on bringing your own office supplies -- pens, paper, highlighters, paperclips, etc. On average, office supplies cost $30-$40 per employee per month (ref: Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce). Make it your goal to reduce personal office supply costs by $20 per month. Emphasize that if your model is implemented company-wide, this would represent annual savings of $22,320,000 to Microsoft or $24,468,000 to Oracle, which equates to 0.038% of Microsoft's revenue or 0.105% of Oracle's revenue. In these terms, your initiative can have nearly 3 times the impact at Oracle.

If I may clarify... The fact that we cite "productivity" as a critical metric in terms of nominal performance measurements should not be misconstrued to imply meaning. In fact, there is no tangible value in "productivity." (If there were, we would not need elaborate decks to demonstrate otherwise.) Rather, the ability to babble incoherently while maintaining and projecting any semblance of sincerity is the sole driver of executive fortitude. This inestimable capacity shall dictate your advancement, if not your very survival, in said environs. Which brings us back to slides 33-41, and especially slide 72, "Beyond stupid graduation: What else you need..." Verily, I repeat myself. But now we can all appreciate the impetus.

I think the Oracle always had Java to go with the cookies. And they were awesome cookies. Just remember -- there is no spoon.

haha, doubt it though. After getting distracted from, for lack of a better word, a project that has required your complete focus, generally speaking it takes an average of 15-20 minutes for a person to reacquire said focus; focus facilitates productivity. So having barely clothed women walking up and down the halls will cause a, especially a programming centric industry, dramatic fall in productivity.

Now let me just say, I would NOT complain, but it would be kind of annoying half the team being gone for 30 minutes at a time... :P

Worship Mr Gates everyday, go out of your way to support MS, get the words "The best is yet to come" tattooed on your back and you should be able to sniff out and finish off any traitors within the organization.

Wow, this is a great idea! Tell the boss that you have an idea to save more than $20 million. And tell him you want $2 million of the money that's saved! How can he refuse, he will still be saving millions of dollars!
