Linux booster left Sun in May (posted in error)
IT-Director.com story begins, " Stephen DeWitt, Sun Microsystem's Vice-President for Content Delivery and Edge computing is the fifth Sun Exec to leave in less than a month. The company was slow to recognise Linux but DeWitt's history as President of Cobalt, Sun's edge device, made him a key player in the company's Linux strategy. Add this to an Exec weakened by four other departures and losses in the latest quarter's results, and the future looks unsure for Sun."
