This day in history

Five years ago, on June 28 2005, Scott McNealy has announced that Sun is acquiring SeeBeyond. Along with that acquisition came a private side project that has gathered an immense momentum inside Sun, undergone name rebranding and took an unexpected front stage at JavaOne two years later. One man’s vision, through perseverance and dedication, still lives on to this day. No matter what my thoughts on JavaFX are, I can’t help but respect that.
