Oracle and SUN Dropping profits and stock prices have analysts speculating that Sun could be a target for either acquisition or a restructuring in which the company would sell off parts of the business and focus on a smaller set of technologies. In a July 31 report, the 451 Group analyst firm raised the possibility of Sun being acquired: 'Sun's sunken stock price creates a relative bargain considering its roughly $4 billion cash on hand, sizeable intellectual property and patent portfolio, and of course, its respected technology and products'.

Apple should buy

I will say it, at this point apple should really consider purchasing SUN, along with the purchase of CUPS, and then MYSQL this would add to apple's OSX server platform.

Furthermore they are already using ZFS, and DTRACE apple would have a storage platform again to build upon as well as a solid unix foundation. Also finally a developer community. If they were smart this would be a good play
