Sun Still Back on Track

I've always liked Sun Microsystems. It's feisty, clever and always doing new things (kinda like our friends up in Redmond).

Unlike Microsoft, Sun hasn't been consistently profitable and doesn't have any monopolies it can leverage. But Sun can be proud of one thing: It rang up a decent profit -- some $67 million -- this past quarter.

That wasn't nearly enough for Wall Street, which wanted a little more ching. Sun's stock fell sharply right after the profits were announced.
