SUN couldnt sell viagra at an orgy.
Compare and contrast:-
finds some nifty open source IDE, adds a bit of wizardry to support IBM products, renames it(originally VVSAD but now ARSE^H^H^H^HRSA) and SELLS it to thousands of satisfied puinters.
Writes C/C++ dev environment (really a compiler and colourful editor) nobody buys it..
Buys succesfull IDE called Forte then fails to sell it.
Rebrands IDE spends zillions on the next release still fails to sell it.
Another bit of Sun writes a completely differnet IDE in java -- and fails to sell any.
Then GIVES away java IDE therefore destroying what little market Forte and its succesors had.
Suns inability to sell software is just wierd. Some of thier software is very good, and, other companies manage to sell software which is complete c**p. Maybe they need counselling or some heavy duty phsycoanalysis.
Glad I am not a shreholder.
