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 said this a while ago that Solaris would not last much longer and I got shut down.

AIX is strong for IBM, very stable and VERY secure, they will keep selling that on their big iron. On the lower end I think IBM will push people off Solaris and to Linux.

Linux is more flexible and also there are a lot more people these days using it.
