It appeared Sun's Javasoft subsidiary would score
a touchdown with Java, building it into a platform
to challenge Windows. But the company may have dropped
the ball with mistakes and foolish controversies.
Some of the worst: Two incompatible flavors, faltering
100% Pure Java effort, and Sun's refusal to turn
over Java to a neutral standards body. Even IBM and
other fans are calling for Sun to shape up.
There is no off position on the genius switch. ...David Letterman
