As Sun Microsystems moves forward in the business and changes many things, they also look to a change in management. Scott McNealy is stepping down
as the CEO of Sun, to be succeeded by Jonathan Schwartz. McNealy led sun for quite a while, and pushed Sun in many different directions including ones that ended up with Sun losing huge amounts of money over the past few years. With a change in management, the hope is that a change in direction will help bring the company back to good. With partnerships happening with companies like IBM and Vmware, we definitely see a change in typical Sun attitude, and for them it may be better this way.
