In the News We've been following the recent news about IBM potentially buying Sun, and the internet had more or less accepted that big blue was going to be the new owners of Sun Microsystems. However, the omnipresent "people close to the matter" have told the New York Times that IBM has withdrawn its offer, and that the deal is now off.

You're probably right. There is always the not-invented-here-syndrome. Also, while Solaris has enterprise features that Apple could use, they have a lot of extra baggage that Apple would not be interested in.

Apple will likely continue to enhance its platform in house. ZFS was a big win for Apple. Steady as she goes.

Time will tell.
