That what I use to think about Sun Microsystems too until I visited there main facility. It was not that great.
However today with Oracle culture they should be more driven with a set goal.
🤣, the only goal Oracle has for the Sun/Java stuff is the same they have for everything they acquire: to bury everything worth a damn under absurdly expensive licenses, obfuscate the software with lots of unnecessary bloat and lock their clients to their product so they can have a steady flow of money due to "technical support". As long as some people in the industry keep saying "no one got fired for choosing Oracle, right?" they'll keep getting rich.
You clearly don't know much about Sun if all you can say about them is that their main facility "was not that great". Any possibility of innovation or thinking outside the box ended with the Oracle purchase.
Oh no, I am just saying. There are some companies that had a “BLUE” collar culture and some that had a “White” collar culture.
Sun and Intel seemed more like a BLUE collar culture to me. Where software companies and HP and IBM appears to be more of a White collar culture. It had allot to do with dress attire and attitude and atmosphere but that has nothing to do with programmers developer.
Sun had some very smart programmers and engineers and intel too.
It has more to do with how people dressed.
Casual , NO dress code, tee shirts, or shirt and tie.
