Microsoft and Sun settle Java suit
WinInfo has the story on Microsoft and Sun:
Late yesterday, Microsoft and Sun Microsystems reached an agreement that ended a 3-year-old Java licensing lawsuit. Under terms of the agreement, Microsoft will pay Sun $20 million and be barred from using Sun's Java Compatible trademark. And although Microsoft can continue to use Java in its products for 7 years, the Java version the company must use is already out-of-date and will likely continue to be supplied only with older products. The agreement is notable for its timing: Since the Java lawsuit began, Microsoft has developed a competing programming language called C# that offers the same features as Java. But Microsoft immediately pursued the standards route for C#, a strategy Sun has continually ignored with Java.
