Googling Sun Developer Network leads to Microsoft Visual Studio ad

I just Googled “Sun Developer Network”. Look what turned up! Hahaha! An ad for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 which says “Defy All Challenges”. (Screenshot inserted at end of post)

It seems someone at MS Marketing realized that the realease of NetBeans 6 would be the best time to entice OpenSource platform users over to the MS side. Or atleast to make ‘em jealous with a shiny, Flash-y website. Looks like Microsoft bought itself some Google AdWords ads for that phrase. Take a look – Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 – Defy All Challenges. It’s a pretty high bandwidth kinda site though.

The IDE wars are starting to make things pretty cool for the developer community now with Sun pushing NetBeans, Microsoft pushing Visual Studio, IBM going with Eclipse and Oracle with JDeveloper. Check out some of the video demos of new NetBeans 6 features.
