Sun Disses HP

Among the myriad bloggers out there is Jonathan Schwartz, president and chief operating officer of Sun Microsystems. Sun recently started a corporate sponsored blog site encouraging users to post their own blogs.

In August, Schwartz posted an article taking a dig at HP for dropping HP/UX. Said they were now nothing more than a box vendor. HP took umbrage at this, and had their lawyers fire off a nastygram demanding that Schwartz take down the offending article. I thought I was the only one using the term nastygram. Anyway, Sun had their own lawyers fire back a response to get real. Sun then forwarded both messages to ChillingEffects, a site which deals with cease-and-desist letters. Your move, Carly.
