I agree with you that the Java issue is anybody's guess, but "most of the world would like to see their dominence disrupted and toppled"?

Certainly that part of the world that trys to compete with MSFT, which is growing as MSFT expands into new markets, but there are still far more who ride their coattails and cheer them on. And rightfully so, because they have done more to advance the U.S. as a dominant force in world computing than IBM has done in the last 20 years. Without MSFT we would all be using PS2's with proprietary this and proprietary that.

Ya know what's really exciting? The information age has not finished forming yet, there's more to come. We're going to have Web terminals in residential kitchens that read us our mail as we fix that first cup of coffee. We need a strong leader to forge ahead and set standards where there were none previously compatible with everything else. That's the real bridge that we are building to the 21st century.
