Kelly McNeill writes "In an economic environment that has high-tech companies battling for every scrap of revenue they can capture, Sun Microsystems has launched fierce frontal attacks on its largest competitors, Microsoft and IBM, in an effort to win market share and take advantage of its rivals' perceived vulnerabilities. On Monday, Sun announced that it would cut the price of its Web software by 37 percent in a move widely seen as an effort to undercut the price of Microsoft's competing software, which has suffered a series of highly publicized and embarrassing security breaches."
