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 think that they wil kill MySQL, too. Like they did with Informix. Considering Solaris....well, they don't even care for their own AIX.

I am not sure about the OpenOffice, IBM has no interest in office software today, despite of the fact that they started as office "hardware" vendor. Yes, OO is open source, but will they be able to go on without company support ?

They don't have to kill products, they could just stop taking care about them.
