No, he doesn't. If you want to talk to someone in the PR Department at 
Sun, why don't you give them a call and chat them up.

Here's the hard truth about your current abilities insofar as Solaris 
10 is concerned (i don't work in the Public Relations Department at 
Sun either):

If you were a MS Windows shop, you would be developing on Windows 
2000. If you were a Mac shop, you would be developing on Mac OS 9.

In either case, at this point in time your company would be out of 
business, and you would be out of a job, with zero prospects of 
finding a new job, because your skills and domain knowledge are 7 
years out of date.
