Yes, pretty much. I attended all of the keynote given by John Gage of
Sun, and part of the one by Andreesen, as well as checking out the show
floor and the "hands-on" tutuorial for Solaris OpenStep given by Sun.

The most interesting news I heard came from my colleague who sat nearby
during the Andreesen keynote; he told me that Marc is selling out (in big
chunks). Is this a case of getting out while the stock price is high?

And if Netscape and Sun are so chummy (as they seemed to be), will Sun
buy Netscape? One has to wonder...
