Postmodern Litigation · Wel­l, it’s all over the news; we and NetApp are in court. Blec­ch. There is one in­ter­est­ing side-note in this drea­ry sto­ry, a first I sus­pec­t: NetApp’s CEO pro­vid­ed col­or com­men­tary on his blog (no link­age from me to blog­gers who are su­ing us). And then lat­er on to­day, on our of­fi­cial PR blog, ap­pears Sun re­sponse to NetApp law­suit which says, more or less, “In yo face”. Now, I guess, it’s over to the lawyer­s. [Up­date: As of now, I’m re­ject­ing all com­ments on this one. There were a pile in the in-basket this morn­ing, and a cou­ple were en­tire­ly in­ap­pro­pri­ate in a mat­ter in­volv­ing lit­i­ga­tion, and I sud­den­ly be­came un­com­fort­able try­ing to make judg­ment call­s. So, sor­ry, but let’s just leave this.]
[Up­date: I think Bryan Cantrill’s DTrace on ONTAP? de­serves a link, since Bryan was one of the guys who built the tech­nol­o­gy that’s now in play in court.]
