Quote of the day: Sun's money ain't funny

Sun Microsystems CEO Scott McNealy lets loose about quirks in accounting guidelines that he says conflict with cash-flow reality.

In an interview this week with CNET News.com, Sun Microsystems CEO Scott McNealy lets loose about quirks in accounting guidelines that he says don't jibe with the company's cash-flow reality. How did Sun get its $7.5 billion in cash? Says McNealy: "We didn't cheat. We didn't steal that money. People actually felt very good about paying for the invoices we gave them."

McNealy didn't just crunch numbers--he also talked tech, weighing in on Solaris and Java, the Niagara and Rock processors, and Sun's "wonderful" but underappreciated storage environment. Get the details in the full interview.
