Re: #include statements

Sun vs Microsoft was around attempting to coerce Java to Microsoft's standard - Microsoft were sued by Sun for failing to implement the standard correctly while still using Java trademarks and Microsoft were fined as a result and discontinued the MS JVM.

I would dispute that the Sun vs Microsoft case mirrors the Oracle vs Google Java case outside of both being based around Java - drawing parallels with the effects on software development for the two cases isn't valid.
