that would be a terrible thing.

IBM would

- kill Solaris for sake of crappy aix
- kill Sun Java for sake of crappy ibm java
- kill netbeans for sake of eclipse or ratıonal crap
- kill glassfish for sake of bloated pig called Websphere
- kill servers (chaper)
- kill mysql for sake of db2

And unlike Sun products, apart from eclipse no IBM product is open source. This would be a terrible terrible thing for the IT industry.
