Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Yet again hell freezes over. As if Apple's switch to Intel wasn't enough, Sun has announced that IBM is going to sell Solaris on its blade servers. "IBM has agreed to sell Sun's operating system with its BladeCenter servers in "the coming months," according to an IBM spokesman. This is quite the surprise given IBM's contentious relationship with Sun. IBM's services organization, however, does do a large amount of business selling Sun servers and Solaris, which may have helped seal the deal." Jonathan Schwartz announced it in his blog as well.

no, the next "hell freeze" would be "IBM agrees to buy SUN"

The Sun shareholders are in a fight with sun management right now to get rid of the posion pill, so that there is the possibility of that happening.

Keep in mind that IBM sells almost as much sun stuff as sun does.

Wouldn't that be a hoot!?

Especially if IBM bought Sun's 10 year indemnification to Microsoft!
