    You celebrate too soon. Think ahead a little. M$ has. By pulling the Java
    runtime from Windows and forcing this lawsuit, M$ has created a precedent.
    Laws tend to work through precedents. If M$ loses all they have to do is
    put the java runtime back into Windows. If they win, they make it a little
    harder for xp users to run java programs. But _after_ this decision, if M$
    sees a drop in Windows sales, there's a precedent for M$ to sue, forcing
    competitors to create and include a .NET runtime with every copy. Stupid
    move on Sun's part.

    No, no! Sun didn't try to muscle in on .Net and "Sunify" it. That's
    the diff. They will *never* need to put .Net in their products, except
    by choice.

    So, other than Sun crying because they have lost market share to Microsoft,
    why should Microsoft be forced to add Java to "their" operating systems ?
    It's not like consumers have exactly missed Java in Windows XP. And
    there's nothing stopping anyone from downloading the JVM from Sun and using
    it in WinXP if they want to.
    So, Sun should not have any more choice to have their products in Microsoft
    OS's than Microsoft should be allowed to force Sun to use their products.
    Seems like a one way street to me. Build a poorly designed product (Sun's
    JVM) and then force the competition to add it to their products wheather or
    not they want to.
    I think that the Courts should force Crysler to use Ford's DuraMax Diesel
    engines in their Dodge Pickups. After all, Ford's engine might be better
    than the Cummins Diesel engines that Dodge currently sells.
    And anyway, that way, Ford still makes money from their engines. Wheather
    the consumer wants it or not.
    And while I'm thinking about it, maybe Coca Cola should be forced to sell
    Pepsi too !!!!!!!!

    Re: More good news!

    Sun's business model seems to be based around suing others, particularly
    Microsoft, for money or advantage. Why one vendor should be forced by the
    courts to carry another vendor's products, makes no sense to me whatsoever.

    They can stick their shitty, slow Java VM where the sun don't shine. I've
    seen a couple of spanking Java 1.4 apps, and they still suck and are slow.

    Whatever, doubt it will impact on Microsoft, in the long run...and if it
    makes crazed Java zealots happy, then fine. But Sun's continuous lawsuits
    are tedious....I think they have more laywers than technologists and I hope
    they go down in flames real soon now. Open source is a good thing and keeps
    MS on their toes and encourages an open market. Sun doesn't ...it spends all
    it's time trying to work out why no-one is buying it's overpriced hardware
    anymore and thinking up ways of blaming Microsoft for it's woes and abysmal
    share price.

    James,

    Take the time to go back and read the decision that the juge wrote, you'll
    see how moronic your post is.

    People never really got a chance to expieriece what they are missing. That
    is because Microsoft worked hard to derail java. That is why Sun has taken
    this suit as far as they have. Microsoft has made it clear that they will
    rule the Windows application market by what ever means necessary and they
    illegally used their monopoly power to damage Sun and Java. This has been
    determined by a court of law.

    Re: More good news!

    Kent, you might think my response is "moronic" but, what makes you think
    that people have missed anything by Microsoft not including Sun's JVM from
    Windows ? As I said, it's not like it cannot be downloaded and used
    anyway.
    And anyone building apps that depend on Sun's JVM can certainly include it
    in their installation software. So, I don't see your point at all.
    Yes, Sun did win that little victory in court against Microsoft. But, I
    doubt that it will make any difference to the average user.
    What I think is Moronic, is that any company feels that it is neccessary to
    force another company to include their product in a competitors product. I
    have read the court decision and there is nothing there that convinces me
    that it is right. It's all about money . Wheather it's Microsoft's money
    or Sun's. And Sun couldn't compete with Microsoft in any way so they
    decided to sue their way into Microsoft's pocketbook.
    Any software written that needs Sun's JVM will work with Windows XP as long
    as it is included in the installation package. So, I don't see that
    Microsoft has prevented anyone from using it.

    Hmm....
    Sun licenses Java to MS as long as they remain compatible.
    MS ships with JVM 1.1.4 (I seem to remember) which by this time was
    superceded by Sun.
    Sun complained that the MS version was Windows only (as used on >80% of all
    desktop machines).
    Sun authorises MS to distribute that version for another 7 years.
    MS removes JVM from Windows XP but makes it an automatic download option.
    Sun sues MS and forces them to put it back in there.

    Imagine if Sun had spent all those hundreds of millions of dollars
    developing new products, hardware and software, or simply improving Java to
    make it run faster and graphically better in the Windows environment.
    In the midst of all this, Macromedia Flash has rocketed past Java for web
    animation and interactive tasks, removing much of the need for
    cross-platform capable applets, one of the key areas Sun complained about.

    It sure looks as though Sun worked hard to derail themselves. I suspect the
    only input by Microsoft was in the form of calculated prods to the already
    badly tottering carriage of Sun.

    Cheers,
    Jason

    John,

    You are correct about Sun. They are a hardware company. The are having the
    same problems that DEC did. DEC was a hardware company that happened to
    produce some very good software. After things started going downhill, the
    software folks got very frustrated because they had very little control over
    the features they could add to the software. Software marketing basically
    stopped, even in areas where there were direct 3rd party competing products.
    As the end neared, some software groups resorted to paying for marketing from
    their development budget.

    I suspect that Sun's software groups may be headed in this same direction.
    Given this kind of situation, who will produce better software products, the
    software division of a struggling hardware company, or a successful dedicated
    software company?
