Yep, that's the way it works at IBM. Its crap, sad and awful, but that's what they do. Everything in a certain area is put on hold and they then start selling everyone something else until the stuff on hold gets completely replaced. Sun have made a big rod for their own backs here by not pulling their fingers out.
