Segment Two- The SUN SEC Filing- Sell Out or much a-do about nothing?

We are thrilled tonight to joined tonight by Manish Punjabi, Group Marketing Manager of StarOffice at Sun Microsystems. As you must know by now there is a bit (small) of a controversy by some in the community claiming that SUN has "sold out" the Open Office project. Well we are going to address this controversy head on and have invited a representative of Open Office and Sun to join us. No one from the project can make the short notice, but we were lucky enough to get Manish to join us to explain the SUN perspective on this issue.

Manish Punjabi is responsible for marketing StarOffice and products. Prior to his current role, Manish was responsible for marketing Sun's Network Identity, Communication and Portal Server products to key industry verticals and OEM markets. He works closely with Sun's sales organization on strategic accounts and develops the value proposition for customers based on their business and technical requirements.

Before joining Sun Microsystems, Manish launched a venture capital backed venture, Quamba. Quamba delivered remote managed testing and monitoring services to high-traffic web sites. Earlier work experience includes various software development positions encompassing the design and implementation of X-window applications in the Unix environment.

Manish speaks frequently at trade shows and industry conferences on network computing trends. Manish holds an M.B.A from Wharton at The University of Pennsylvania, a M.S. in Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and B.A. in Computer Science, Physics and Mathematics at Ohio Wesleyan University.
