Cringely is telling what this looks like from outside Microsoft, when someone is shooting at you!

Following the fire and motion analogy, with Sun it seems like the strategy is "Have lots of blindfolded shooters fire in random directions, and if we're lucky, we'll hit something."

Wow.

The parts of the column that aren't business concepts that are centuries old
(like "choose your battlefield" or "do not define your business in terms of your perceived competition")
are pretty much entirely wrong.

Philo is simply jealous of a proposed 6-week sabbatical and $2,000 to boot. :))
