It must be hard to be Jonathan Schwartz a day like this, starting his career as CEO with a 10% head count reduction. Not really news, just a matter of when this would happen. Wall street has been pushing for cost reductions for quite some time now.

I'm still convinced Sun will stand strong and keep growing its market share in a number of sectors.
Schwartz has already got a long entry in his blog.
