Sun CEO: computer industry still in infancy

Sun Microsystems CEO Scott McNealey said Tuesday he believes the computer industry is still in its infancy and that everything in the home or office will eventually be connected to the Internet, according to Reuters. “There is a massive amount of stuff that is not being captured by the Net,” McNealey told the crowd at the JavaOne software developer conference. He also took jabs at HP, Compaq, and Dell, saying the three PC makers have ceased innovating, as well as saying that Microsoft’s .NET initiative will fail against Java. “You know that first hit of heroin is free,” McNealey said in regards to Microsoft and .NET. Meanwhile, Apple has published a number of photos from the JavaOne conference, and encourages developers to download the new Java tools.
