Can The Brash Brothers Bounce Back?

from the how-far-can-you-go-hating-Microsoft? dept

Fortune takes a look at the current position that both Oracle and Sun find themselves in today. While both companies flew high during the boom years, they’ve recently been brought a bit closer to earth. The question is whether or not both companies (each lead by very talkative CEOs) can bounce back. The article describes the similarities between the two companies (and their CEOs), and then looks at the differences. They don’t come up with much of a solid prediction, but it’s apparent that both companies are facing a lot of challenges. As they say at the end of the article, suddenly the focus is more on surviving, rather than thriving.
