Monday, October 03, 2005 Sun Rises on Google Talk

"Sun announced on its Web site that CEO Scott McNealy and Google CEO Eric Schmidt will hold a news conference at 10:30 a.m. PDT Tuesday at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif., to "discuss joint activities." No additional details were provided." Source:

EXCELLENT!! It looks like it is happening already! I am extremely excited about tomorrows joint news conference held by Google and Sun Microsystems! Sun - the company I used to love for the potential to challenge Microsoft with Java based software. It never really happened - Sun didn't have the distribution that Microsoft had. But today Google has that on the Internet. Combined it could be a real challenge to Microsoft. No one outside the two companies know, what the news conference is about. However, it could be that big moment, where official plans that could shift power from ever dominant Microsoft actually are released. It could be the single most significant event since the launch of graphic Internet in 1993.

What do I mean by "It looks like it is happening already!"? Well it is only nine days ago, that I wrote this post - "Will Google hurt Microsoft with free software?"

I thought, that it might happen some where down the road 1-2-3 years from now. But now it might actually happen already tomorrow. We don't know, but we can certainly speculate.
