‘LOOSE BRUCE’ AND THE DREGS OF JAVA

By CBR Staff Writer

Whether it makes the top ten is doubtful, but the legal battle between Microsoft Corp and Sun Microsystems Inc over Java has inspired a song. Bruce Kerr, a Sun attorney, sings parodies under the name Loose Bruce and his Java song describes the battle between Sun boss Scott McNealy and Microsoft’s Bill Gates. Part of it goes:

Microsoft released a browser, Java was there

The Sun it rose and lit up what was really a dare

The RMI, the JNI were missing and lost, Scott said, ‘Bill you broke your promise

Now pay the cost’
