ZDNET: "In light of recent announcements by several vendors (e.g., IBM, Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard and Oracle) regarding new
software strategies, Sun Microsystems' software puzzle appears to be missing one of its pieces. A plan for achieving
leadership and innovation in Web services is under-represented as a top-line issue. Sun has shown recent indications
that a new major strategy announcement is on the way. However, the lack of a clear message from Sun regarding the
way it plans to capture leadership in Web services defies logic when viewed from the standpoint of Sun as a thought
leader in the software-as-services revolution."
