Looking at Sun without getting burned

Sun From a profit of $927 million in fiscal 2001, Sun fell to a cumulative loss of $4.4 billion in the next three years. Shares in its stock (SUNW on the Nasdaq) plunged from $64.31 in September 2000 to $2.67 two years later, and it's rarely ventured past $5.50 since that time.

Sun's colorful co-founder and CEO Scott McNealy insists the company is on a solid financial footing and poised for a strong run.

Sun Microsystems: Ready for a comeback?
Sun After a two-year-long series of weak quarterly reports, Sun Microsystems may be on the edge of a new beginning as it puts into action the key components for a bounceback.

Sun's future may not be as bleak anymore. The company has been reporting losses in the nine-figure range for more than a year. However, the release of Solaris 10 and the latest management and product strategy transformations may stir up the much-needed and long-awaited market activity in its favor.

Win - MS: McNealy: Microsoft integration work slow going
Sun The companies' integration project, headed by Microsoft's Bill Gates and Sun's Greg Papadopoulos, is "way more complicated and detailed and extensive than I thought they were going to do," McNealy said.

The integration work is an outgrowth of a landmark $2 billion legal settlement and technology agreement announced earlier this year by the two companies.

McNealy: "Sun Is Not Proprietary, Just As IBM Is Not Bankrupt"
Sun If anyone for a moment thinks Scott McNealy is going to take some kind of back seat in the public eye now that Sun has go-to president and COO Jonathan Schwartz dealing with the press and analysts on a seemingly equal footing with his boss, they are wrong. McNealy is still as combative as ever, as he proved when talking to the San Jose Mercury News this week.

McNealy: Microsoft needs Sun to beat IBM and Red Hat
Sun Whatever pleasantries once existed between Sun Microsystems and Red Hat have vanished. This won't come as a shock to many of you. The companies have been jawing in the press for some time. The extent, however, of Sun's loathing for Red Hat is more profound than many imagine, with Sun's CEO Scott McNealy largely confirming a shared attack with Microsoft against the Linux vendor.

Kodak had its moment, but Sun not done yet in the courtroom
Sun Yesterday we noted that more and more companies are heading to the courts to sue other companies in intellectual property disputes involving software, because they believe they can get away with it -- whether they're in the right or not. Eastman-Kodak Co. is the latest corporate bully to test the legal waters. In the culmination of a three-week-long case, a federal jury in Kodak's hometown of Rochester, N.Y., ruled that Sun violated a patent that Kodak held. But hold on -- this case is far from over.

Sun loses $1 billion lawsuit to Kodak
Sun Kodak has successfully maintained in court that Java infringes on [Kodak's] patents, and as the trial enters the damages phase they're asking for damages of over $1 billion. Kodak acquired the patents from Wang, and now there's failure all around: the failure of technology companies to adapt to changing market conditions, and the failure of the US patent system for not only enabling but encouraging this kind of rent-seeking behavior.
