I came across an interesting observation on Sun chief executive Jonathan Schwatz’s blog. Jonathan states:
think about it – Linux and OpenSolaris are the ultimate in user generated content
He’s talking about Sun’s new JavaFX technology which puts Java on a mobile phone. I’m not sure about mobile phones which seem pretty proprietary (mobile operators don’t like you running your own applications – or Skype for that matter – over their expensive 3G networks). But Linux is user generated. The open source community really is Web 2.0.
