Sun injects Euro universities with OpenSparc

,----[ Quote ]
| The processor and operating system technologies that made Sun Microsystems
| one of the first big Silicon Valley startups got their start three decades
| inside the computer science departments of two universities. It was Stanford
| University for the hardware and the University of California at Berkeley for
| the operating system that would eventually become Solaris.
| There is a feedback loop you can get with tech and academia. It starts there,
| gets commercialized, and then comes back as products that universities and
| colleges deploy to do research. That's why new technology that offers some
| sort of edge is always adopted by academia and government labs first. Take
| Linux-based supercomputer clusters as just one example.

Sun, allies broaden open-source chip push

| and thousands of other software projects.
