Sun Says Microsoft Injunction is Critical

A federal judge's order that would force Microsoft Corp. to include Sun Microsystems Inc.'s programming language in the latest version of Windows is necessary to prevent the language from becoming extinct, Sun argued in a court filing.

The company filed its response Tuesday to Microsoft's appeal of the order.

Sun said its Java programming language is damaged each day the injunction is not imposed because the market tilts toward Microsoft's .NET framework. Sun accuses Microsoft of unlawfully distributing outdated Java versions that are incompatible for Windows users.

A federal judge in Baltimore ordered Microsoft last week to include updated versions of Java in Windows XP operating systems until the litigation is resolved.
