The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Analyst pushes overhaul of Sun Microsystems

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Analyst pushes overhaul of Sun Microsystems "Merrill Lynch analyst Steven Milunovich offered a plan to revive "bloated, underachieving, unfocused" server-computer maker Sun Microsystems — including a personality makeover for Chief Executive Scott McNealy.
Warning that Sun is headed for a ravine "filled with carcasses" of defunct computer companies, the analyst wrote a research report as an open letter to McNealy and Sun's board. He said they should slash as much as 19 percent of the company's staff members and settle on a single new mission."
