Sun has made true on its chief executive's promise and today filed a lawsuit against storage vendor NetApp for infringing on 12 of its patents. The case is a retaliation for a legal complaint that NetApp filed against Sun in September.
In his colorful, Wednesday blog posting, Schwartz declared an all-out war against NetApp. Sun will demand that NetApp ceases sales of many of its products and demands monetary damages.
More importantly, Schwartz succeeds at positioning his company as the undisputed "good guy" by promising to donate half the proceeds to the free software movement. Secondly, the case revolves around ZFS, technology that Sun developed and then released under an open source license. NetApp isn't just suing Sun, but threatens mankind.
