Why?  If their game plan works, MS would be where IBM are now (s/w wise),
and Sun would be where MS are today.  You'd replace one big, lovable,
monopolistic company with another, and is Sun really that much better?

Besides, MS seem to have a sense of humour.  When my TCP/IP failed in Win95
the other day, I got a dialog error message -
Err 221 - Goodbye Dave (or Hal - can't remember)

       Here are a few more instances of MS humor, these functions appear
in user32.exe which contains much of Windows functionality:

Please don't confuse _programmers_ with _Microsoft_.  Microsoft is the
marketing arm of some good (and some bad) programmers.  They have a good
deal - highest per-capita millionaires of any company in the (known)
universe.  And they got that way the old-fashioned way - ROYALTIES!

Personally, I would like to see someone other than MS get some money out of
the market.
