No Official Word Yet on Monty and Sun….
Sep 12, 2008 / By Sheeri Cabral
Smithy commented on my blog post about the rumor of Monty leaving Sun with a pointer to an article on ComputerWorld Finland that mentions:
Widenius told to Computerworld Finland on Friday that negotiations are still on.
Meanwhile, Matt Asay, who seems to think Monty actually has left Sun (even though all other reports have been clear to mention that this is unconfirmed), writes of a new investment Monty has made.
Last week I speculated about the impact of Monty leaving Sun. In the end, if he does stay, it’s wonderful for Sun. If he leaves, he will no doubt go on to continue to be wonderful for the database community at large, much like Jim Starkey.
But until Monty Says, nothing is official.
