McNealy on Microsoft: Get the chainsaw out
Break up Microsoft? Not a problem for Sun Microsystems Inc. CEO Scott McNealy.LAS VEGAS -- Break up Microsoft? Not a problem for Sun Microsystems Inc. CEO Scott McNealy. After an hours worth of fun at Microsoft Corp.s expense during his Comdex keynote here Wednesday, McNealy turned serious at a press briefing when asked about how Microsoft should be punished if it loses its antitrust suit.
"There are four basic things Microsoft must be precluded from doing," McNealy said. First, the company must provide uniform pricing for its Windows licenses. Second, it must not be allowed to forge exclusive agreements with OEMs. Third, it must open up its APIs.
