Say what? Corporate leadership hinges on...drinking?

Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz had something surprising to say about company management.

Jonathan Schwartz, chief executive of Sun Microsystems, sat down for a public chat with Fortune at the magazine's first iMeme technology conference on Thursday. In noting some of the differences between him and his predecessor, Scott McNealy, who handed over the reins about a year ago, Schwartz said: "He likes to drink wine out of a box; I like to drink wine out of a bottle."

News.com's Kari Dean McCarthy offered this quip in response: "Maybe they should hire someone who likes to drink wine out of a glass and see where that takes them."
