Father of Java reviews Oracle's handling of sun Technology

technology Grade Gosling’s comments
Solaris F- Dead. Licensing costs are too high, trying to use Solaris is a crazy idea and behavior, and there is no point in providing hardware by Oracle, I have to switch all my Solaris systems to Linux. It makes me cry.
Java B+ To my surprise, Oracle handles Java very well. However, in terms of how to deal with security issues, Oracle may have some “growing pains”.
MySQL C MySQL is not dead yet, but it is rapidly losing the interest of developers, and may be gradually replaced by MySQL branches and NoSQL.
SPARC N/A It’s hard to evaluate. There were many problems before Oracle acquisition.
GlassFish application server B- It develops rapidly, but the promotion is not effective.
NetBeans B- The developers of NetBeans have done a good job, covering the new API, with good evaluation and usage. But Oracle doesn’t seem to realize the value of the treasure they have. Tools are a great way to influence the developer community, but Oracle doesn’t seem to understand that.
