    Or at least from time to time!

    Today, Hell froze over and Sun is going to bundle MSN Tool bar with its Java virtual machine

    WHAAAT!!? But ... Old enemies... Java wars...? Office Wars!!? 528 MILLION in settlement...

    Yes, exactly! Perplexing!

    For people who don't know...

    Sun still competes with Microsoft on at least 4 other fronts: Office, Java vs .NET, Solaris vs Windows and MySQL vs MsSQL. And they're losing on all but the MySQL front where I personally think it's a tie. But to go ahead and include some Microsoft technology "crap-let" like MSN tool bar (Which I don't use, I never used and I will never use) is just beyond my comprehension

    What's next? Apple Selling copies of Windows Vista? Google using Live Search? iPod running Zune software? Sony promoting XBOX?

    Usually when I get news about Sun Microsystems and Microsoft working together, it is some highly technical enterprise collaboration stemming from their lawsuit settlement a few years back.

    On Monday, though, the companies announced something in the consumer arena. Sun will start distributing the MSN toolbar to Internet Explorer users when they download Sun's Java Runtime Environment.

    The companies said that Sun's Java runtime is downloaded tens of millions of times per month.

    "This agreement with Sun Microsystems is another important milestone in our strategy to secure broad-scale distribution for our search offering, enabling millions more people to experience the benefits of Live Search," Microsoft senior vice president Yusuf Mehdi said in a statement. "With the vast array of Java software-based Web applications that are downloaded every month, this deal will expose Live Search to millions more Internet users and drive increased volume for our search advertisers."

    On its own, the news won't change the shape of the Internet. However, it does represent some shifting allegiances for Sun, which had been allied with Microsoft's rivals.

    Until just recently, those downloading the Google Pack of desktop software received Sun's StarOffice, though that has apparently reached an end. As part of a 2005 deal, Sun was also to distribute Google's toolbar. Sun also has distributed Yahoo's toolbar.

    As surprising as it is, the X360 version of Quantum of Solace sports a ridiculous amount of Sony ads.

    But that's out of MS hands because it's a third party

    When it comes to hardware it is a bit like you mentioned.

    look at the wii for example, it's parts are manufactured by IBM, Samsung, panasonic, sony and dozens of different companies that can be competing with each other on the same market.
    Ok, on the "I will never use" part, I got a complain that I shouldn't be so prejudice!!!!!
    I agree, and therefore, I will say, I might use it in the future if it gets better. So far, it's not all that great. I would like to see all the added functionality of the MSNToolbar built into the browser (IE8?)

    Speaking of toolbars, you'd thing Google would release its toolbar for Chrome by now!

    Google pages still think Chrome is firefox.
    I don't use any single search toolbars, particularly since mycroft/ff search box, put all of them in one button.
