I'd just say Sun needs better analysts. 

See: I'm already satisfied if .NET stays compatible with Mono. Yeah, the
other direction: Develop for Mono, run everwhere -- you get the idea.
Well, and that goal is a trivial one: The .NET Framework is out,
applications depend on it. Obviously Microsoft has to keep backward
compatibility and fortunatly they are known, to do this kind of job
really good.
