The Register – Sun has won a preliminary injunction in its private antitrust case against Microsoft, requiring the monopolist to carry Sun’s Java and not Redmond’s feral version.
Sun also scored a copyright victory in the Baltimore ruling today.
In preliminary hearings this month, Judge Motz compared Microsoft’s treatment of Java to the Tonya Harding kneecapping, adding that “capitalism is about making money, but it’s also about something else. It’s also about pride of product.”
Am I missing something? First rumors that MS might buy Macromedia to leverage Flash against Java w/regards to user interface objects … now this?! Am I not getting the whole story here?
