WSJ.com - At Sun, McNealy to Cede CEO Job; Loss Widens but Revenue Rises 21%: "Sun Microsystems Inc. said co-founder Scott McNealy will give up the job of chief executive to the No. 2 person at the company, Jonathan Schwartz, a historic transition for a computer maker facing stiff pressure to cut costs and boost revenue.
