I suggested a couple of years ago that Sun should figure out what their customers want - and give it to them. And with the Java support available from the "Sun Developer Expert Assistance", I think they have done just that.
blogged a couple of years ago that Sun just didn't understand what their customers want, with the specific example of looking for Java support that I was expecting to pay for.
Well, now that support is available at http://developers.sun.com/services/expertassistance/ . It's resonably priced - well actually its dead cheap if you do any decent amount of Java development. And I wasn't even looking for that, it was highlighted somewhere or other and I clicked through. So Sun, well done. Somehow your marketing found me, and your offering is great value. Here's one more suggestion. Stick a link on the front page menu of Java pages where you have "Popular Downloads" etc - it would fit really well in that "Resources" section.
Well done, Sun, looking better than you have for a long time.
