Jonathan Schwartz rocked the technical community
when he announced his new role as NetBeans Evangelist, giving up his
position as CEO of Sun Microsystems.
"NetBeans is the best d@*$ development environment, everybody knows that!"
Schwartz included in his announcement. "I love the NetBeans community,
and I feel like it's my home."
In solidarity, NetBeans Evangelists and community members grew ponytails overnight.

his new ponytail.

|| Evangelists weren't the only ones sporting new hairdos, community
members also joined in to welcome Jonathan. Vincent Brabant had a new
ponytail. "We welcome Jonathan to the NetBeans Open Source community!"
“I love Jonathan's enthusiasm, but he's not the most technical guy,"
said one Evangelist who wished to remain anonymous. "He'll have
to work on his demos."

“I always knew he had a NetBean-shaped heart," said Judith Lilienfeld,
Director of NetBeans Evangelism and Jonathan's new boss, as she flipped
her new ponytail across her shoulder.
