Legal We're far from done with the Oracle v. Google lawsuit. The search giant has responded to the lawsuit, and Miguel De Icaza has provided a very interesting insight into the case. His report has been confirmed by James Gosling, known as the father of Java who left Sun right after the merger. Icaza speculates that the potential to monetise on Java by suing Google was pitched by Jonathan Schwartz during Sun's sales talks with Oracle. Oh boy.

I saw this item earlier. I read it as "Jonathan Schwartz didn't have the balls to try it himself." Easier to sell a tech company than to run one.

Schwartz always struck me as more of a glorified blogger than a CEO...
