Sun And IBM Come to Terms: "In a Q&A session after the keynotes, Schwartz and Sun CEO Scott McNealy were a bit defensive about the open source pressure.
'We are the leaders in open source,' McNealy insisted. 'We're number one. There's nobody close to having donated as much open source. Every time we see the right and appropriate way to do something, we do it.'
Schwartz said the company's hesitation came from its desire to make sure that any code released remained interoperable and free of intellectual property issues. "
