In 1997, Ousterhout left Berkeley to join Sun Microsystems Laboratories, which hired a team to join him in Tcl development. After several years at Sun, he left and co-founded Scriptics, Inc. (later renamed Ajuba Solutions) in January 1998 to provide professional Tcl development tools and most of the Tcl team followed him from Sun. Ajuba was purchased by Interwoven in October 2000.

  • In 1997, he joined Sun.
  • "After several years", he left and co-founded Scriptics in January 1998

Is "after seveal years" a mistake, or should 1997 be 1987 ?

I'll do some research, but if someone knows the answer... Paercebal 09:56, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
