John Ousterhout leaves SunScript

Markus Fleck (aka python) wrote in to say "John Ousterhout, author of the Tcl language and the Tk toolkit, also of Spring OS fame, has left SunScript to form his own company, called Scriptics, to promote the use and further development of Tcl. - I suppose that Sun didn't find paying for Tcl development worthwhile any more, because there has hardly been any revenue from it yet (even the source for the Tcl Plugin for web browsers was made freely available when a poll showed that too few people would be willing to pay for being able to execute "Tclets" in their browsers)."
