Another Fortune honor for Sun

Two weeks after publishing the list of “America’s Most Admired” companies, Fortune has published the “World’s Most Admired” companies for 2008.

As with the America’s listing, our scores improved in EVERY category. Sun’s ranking within the Computers category jumped from #8 to #6 this year and our overall score improved .47 of a point.

The improvement over last 2 years is equally impressive, including a 7 place rise in Innovation, a 6 position jump in Financial Soundness and Long-term investment and a 5 position jump in our rank among computer companies, people management and global competitiveness.
