CRN : Breaking News : More Executive Shakeups At Sun in Wake Of Microsoft Deal : 12:57 PM EST Mon., Apr. 05, 2004 "The spokeswoman said Green timed his departure with the completion of Sun's negotiations to end the Java war with Microsoft, which the company unveiled Friday. She said Green was not leaving because he was passed over as Jonathan Schwartz's successor or because he is upset over the deal between Sun and Microsoft. Schwartz was named president and COO on Friday.
"[Green] had tendered his resignation long before any of the other executive changes at Sun last week," she said."
