Default Oracle Layoffs Hit Longtime Solaris Developers Hard

Phoronix, 2 September 2017

It looks like the Oracle layoffs just before the US Labor Day indeed hit the SPARC and Solaris groups hard.

There hasn't been any official announcement from Oracle, but unconfirmed reports put it at 1,000~1,500 Oracle staff losing their jobs, particularly in the Solaris and SPARC divisions.


--Update 2 Sep 2017, 22:29 UTC Here is a link an article in The Register

When you see a good move, look for a better one.
