That stands for “Chief Open Source Officer”, and as of now, Sun has one, namely Simon Phipps. We are doing a whole lot of Open-Source stuff, and a lot of different groups are doing it, and we totally need a single point of contact and coordination. Simon’s the obvious choice, and now’s the obvious time. By the way, if you’ve never been to one of Simon’s speeches on things OSS, you should go, he’s always worth listening to.
