Infoworld about Sun: At 25, Sun struggles to reinvent itself
Interesting article at Infoworld. The last paragraph is the best:
There's no doubt that Sun has superior technology. In the real-world IT market, however, superior technology doesn't always win out. (Some of Sun's competitors in the Workstation Wars can testify to that.) But the other card Sun has in its hand, after all, is sheer staying power. And as it marches onward toward its thirties, let's not think of it as a company approaching middle age. Rather, it's simply growing into maturity. As long as it carries on the cause of open source and open standards -- both in name and in spirit -- there will always be a future for it in the market, no matter what its shape.
