Sun Microsystems, located in Mountain View, California, was founded in 1982 on the premise that "the network is the computer." By the mid-1990s, the company's revenues were in the $6 billion range and it provided a full range of software and hardware products, including operating systems, high-performance workstations, and network equipment. Sun Microsystem's philosophy is based on open, nonproprietary systems. Its technologies are designed to be freely adopted by any manufacturer.
