(Sun releases Java under GPL licence ... A kick in the teeth 
to Vole's .Net ... It also puts Novell in a very uncomfortable 
position, because its "Mono" project ...)

Ponytailed CEO Jonathan Schwartz will announce the ground-breaking 
move in a webcast to be held later at 9:30am Pacific Time. 


In related news, we have to deny the rumour about Richard Stallman 
having a shock and being in a coma after hearing these Earth-shaking 
news, really. What the tech plebs - always prone to Sun-bashing - 
will say after this remains to be seen. And that brings us back to 
ponytail CEO Jonathan Schwartz and Novell's recent deal with the 
Evil Empire of Redmondia. Schwartz wisely said a few years ago in an 
interview published by "Business 2.0" magazine: "No company has ever 
done a deal with Microsoft that lasted, they're just naive if they 
think they can". What more can I say? To quote Mel Brooks' character 
in the movie Spaceballs: "Never underestimate the power of the 
Schwartz!" ยต 

He he.
