Sun CEO steps down after 22 years

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.

Same guess here, although some radical changes have been attempted in the past few years, Sun keeps lagging behind many of its competitors and losing market share.
