Sun's stand: How the Liberty Alliance could save e-commerce

Author: JT Smith

ZDNet's David Coursey comments on Sun's new Liberty Alliance, a plan that aims to create an open standard alternative to Microsoft's .NET: "If there is a fight, Sun will lose. Given that Sun has never been a builder of great coalitions, I
almost wonder why they are trying again. Jini and Jxta seem to be down for the count, and even
Java didn't come close to the hype. I have no expectation of Sun being able to make this happen
without support that only Microsoft (or a court of competent jurisdiction) can provide."
