McNealy Leaves Sun to
Join Must See TV Thursday

By Brian Briggs

Palo Alto, CA - Scott McNealy, CEO of Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced today that he is stepping down from the position to join NBC's "Must See TV" Thursday lineup. "Scott's Place" will air at 9:30 following "Will and Grace" in NBC's just announced fall schedule.

Must SeeLong known for his stand-up comedy, McNealy will join an ensemble cast in a sitcom about life in Silicon Valley for a single dad with three children and a wacky neighbor.  "It was time for me to branch out," said McNealy, "All this dot com stuff was getting pretty tiresome. I've been the dot in dot com, now I want to be the com in dot comedy!"

Sun President Edward Zander said, "We knew we were just a stepping stone in Scott's career.  Providing servers and workstations to power the internet economy isn't Scott's dream.  I mean, what kind of dream is that anyway?"   He continued, "Making people laugh is Scott's dream.  Not many people know that he almost left to star in "Everybody Loves Scott" but Ray Romano beat him to it.  He wasn't going to let it happen again."

The deal almost fell through as NBC's partnership with Microsoft in MSNBC became a sticking point.  McNealy said, "Once they made it clear that Bill Gates wouldn't be my boss, it was a done deal."

Sun's stock was unchanged on the news as analysts weren't quite sure what to make of it.  "Are you serious?" said one analyst who wished to remain anonymous.
