Oracle and SUN With today's surprise announcement that Oracle will acquire Sun Microsystems, several questions were raised as to some Sun products, including MySQL, Solaris, and OpenOffice.org. Browsing around the net, there are several viewpoints on the future of these Sun products, and the OpenOffice.org team has even issued a statement itself.

Which is great because there will finally be an organisation willing to take Java by the horns and map a direction rather than whimsically swaying according to internal politics. Swing versus SWT is a prime example of Sun politicking pushing something they know is inferior but do so because they (Sun) created it.

Wah!? SWT is easier but otherwise no way superior. I haven't used them much but I do know that much.. Java 7 is supposed to make Swing easier to use; if it comes out that is..
