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 However, the omnipresent "people close to the matter" have told the New York Times that IBM has withdrawn its offer, and that the deal is now off.

Why would customers need the hardware and services of ANY vendor?

Because the customers apparently believe that they need them, I would suppose.

But this sub-thread is not about customers. It is about costumers. And I should think that they would be more concerned with proper color, lighting, and makeup than with Sun's offerings.
