Corporate culture: Oracle vs. Sun

At the technical panel discucssion on Friday morning at Devoxx there was the interesting question “Does Oracle’s corporate culture stand in the way of success for Java?”. Even more interesting was the answer from either Brian Goetz or Mark Reinold (don’t remember), both big wigs at Oracle…

“I think Java became a success despite Sun’s corporate culture. Priorities at Sun changed quite rapidly from time to time. At Oracle it takes longer to make a plan but then with stick with it” (something along the lines of that)
