The US standards body evaluating Sun Microsystems Inc’s application to become a submitter of public standards that the International Standards Organization (ISO) has voted against Sun’s application, reaffirming its vote of no with comments in the first round of voting. The US Technical Advisory Group (TAG) voted no after five European countries have voted yes already, which we reported yesterday. The US vote has the same weight as the other 27 countries that will vote in all, so no doubt Sun will not be too concerned just yet. The others have until November 14 to cast their votes, after which a majority should be sufficient to enable Sun to submit Java through the ISO process.
