In the News In a move that would certainly shake up the computer industry quite a bit, IBM is reportedly in talks with Sun Microsystems about the possibility of IBM acquiring Sun. Sun is going through hard times at the moment, and has been actively looking for someone to be acquired by.

I'm sure that if IBM buys SUN the following products will disappear:

1. NetBeans (In favor to Eclipse)
2. OpenSolaris and Solaris (In favor to Linux and AIX)
3. Glassfish

Sun represents the new wave of OpenSource products in my eyes and if IBM buys SUN that movement and spirit will be killed.
