Sun 'won't abandon' open-source lobby

Despite a new window into Microsoft's proprietary technology, Sun Microsystems won't stop its call for open standards, executives and analysts say.

Sun has been one of the most vocal advocates of open standards, arguing that customers should be able to choose from technology from multiple
suppliers and shouldn't have to fear getting locked in to any one company's technology. The rhetoric has been designed to undermine Microsoft, whose
software has long been derided by Sun chief executive Scott McNealy as a "welded-shut hair ball."
