Re: SUN once said the the same positive things about Java Patents and licensing structure

I think the problem is your last sentence; you're right about server/desktop versus mobile, but Sun was doomed long before Google got involved.

Thanks, at least there's some discussion going on.

I agree on the fact that Sun was struggling and that SPARC machines were expensive. But they were still fighting to survive and I think that Google delivered the coup of grace.
