Jonathan Schwartz on open source, the iPhone, and more

Posted by terrencebarr on January 19, 2007 at 7:42 AM PST

A very interesting in-depth interview of Sun's CEO Jonathan Schwartz where he comments on the iPhone, open source, and multiple near-death experiences. Highly recommended.

The iPhone-related comments begin at around 8 mins. into the interview: "The market ability of a device that is truly closed [limited to static content but not open to dynamic/executable content] just limits its appeal."

Some insights around open source at 33 mins.: "Every software asset that we produce is open source. If it isn't today, it will be pretty damn quickly."

Find it here.

Enjoy,
