REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. TheStreet) -- The sun has set for Scott McNealy, Sun's (JAVA) outspoken co-founder and chairman, who, on the eve of Oracle's (ORCL - Get Report) $7.4 billion acquisition of Sun, bid an emotional farewell to his company.Yesterday McNealy sent an internal memo to Sun employees, which was published by CNET, outlining his feelings for the company he co-founded in 1982. The hockey-playing 54-year old has seldom missed an opportunity to trash-talk Sun's rivals, particularly during his 22-year tenure as CEO from 1984 and 2006.
