Sun chief Scott McNealy, who normally misses no opportunity to criticise his Microsoft counterpart Bill Gates in public, changed his tune in a press call on Friday. Asked how he would act if he were chief of Microsoft, he admitted: "I would probably not do anything different ... He's doing exactly what he should be doing, managing the company as aggressively and animalistically as the law will allow him."
However, he would not comment on the rumours that Sun will acquire Netscape, except to say: "We don't comment on rumours, however accurate, but we prefer to be in as many rumours as we can."
