According to CNET News.com: "Legal experts describe Sun Microsystems' lawsuit against Microsoft as very aggressive and expansive, going well beyond anything pursued by federal and state trustbusters. And in many important respects, they say, the suit could be tough to win in its current form." This is especially the case because Sun didn't file as a class action lawsuit, on behalf of its Java vendors and implementors as well as the Java community at large which participates in the JCP (Java Community Process).

Do you think Sun should've filed as a class action instead of the private filing made?
