It is the day before BEA World Prague, and it seems like a good time to
revisit what BEA's position on open source is. As I travel across the globe,
I have been describing our position to developers, and they instinctively
understand it. I wanted to write it down, in order to be able to refer to it.
Our position is simple: What is best for developers and companies is what is

I work in Building 2 on the 4th floor of BEA's Corporate offices. I had
moved into a new office, when I noticed a box of CDs on the filing cabinet
near my office. They were CDs of Ubuntu, a Linux distribution. "Just what the

positions on the key drivers transforming our industry. With that in mind,
here are the first 5 of the ten most important trends in storage with
predictions about what will change in 2011:
1. Capacity demands will continue to grow exponentially.
It is amazing how little this one is mentione... (more)
Scott McNealy, chairman, president and CEO of Sun Microsystems, kicked off
the second day of the 2004 Java Conference in what was largely a reshash of
Monday's keynote by Jonathan Schwartz, with a few notable exceptions.
In front of an 80 foot-wide HDTV-driven screen, McNealy started out with his
standard stand-up routine, railing against press and analysts, and his recent
appearance in Playboy magazine about CEO pay, written by former US Labor
Secretary and Brandeis University Professor Robert Reich.
One constant theme of the Sun keynotes this year has been the mantra that all
