Sun sues Microsoft in breach of contract
Sun are suing Microsoft over breach of their Java contract.
Microsoft have branded products Java compatible which have not conformed
to Suns specifications. This in effect has misled developers into thinking
they were developing platform-independent Java apps which
once compiled would run on any platform or Java compatible browser but
instead just would run on the Win 32 (95/NT) environment or in the case
of web Java applets Internet Explorer 4.
This in effect is damaging to the whole cross platform
idea of Java and ties people down to Windows which is bad for the competition
and is another example of how Microsoft tries to dominate the market.
So do you think Sun was right to sue Microsoft.
What web browser do you prefer - Netscape, Microsoft Internet
Explorer or another browser e.g. Lynx:
Netscape - 80%
Internet Explorer -12%
Others - 8%
Now do you agree with my view that if Microsoft drive
Netscape out of business. Microsoft will not produce any UNIX web browsers
meaning that UNIX users will have to change to Windows to get the latest
Yes - 74%
No - 26%

Using Netscape Navigator 3 or above
