Sun, Microsoft to announce expanded partnership

The fruits of their initial pact haven't exactly taken the tech world by storm, but the two companies are planning to announce a broader pact on Wednesday.

Sun Microsystems and Microsoft are planning to announce a broader pact on Wednesday, the companies said in a news alert late Tuesday.

Microsoft and Sun "will hold a teleconference to discuss an expanded agreement between the two companies," they said in a media alert. On the press conference call are slated to be John Fowler, executive vice president of Sun's systems group and Andy Lees, a corporate vice president in Microsoft's server and tools unit.

It's unclear what the two companies will announce, but the fruits of their initial April 2004 pact certainly have yet to rock the tech world.

Microsoft and Sun representatives declined to comment beyond the news alert.
