Sun Microsystems' CEO Scott McNealy.
"Q:How do you think the OpenSolaris launch went? Have you learned anything since you put it out there?
A:McNealy: I always make the Al Gore-ish statement that we invented community development. We started doing community development before we got founded. Three or four years before we founded Sun, one of our founders (Bill Joy) was pioneering the idea of open-source community-developed kernels in the operating system space, doing BSD licensing models with the Berkeley Software Distribution. We were the Red Hat of Berkeley before Linus (Torvalds, the Linux founder) was out of diapers.
