IBM takes back SUN offer – BAD IDEA SUN!

Posted by: David Vasta

I think everyone at SUN is happy for now. I am not sure how good this is for them long term. I don't think SUN has what it takes to keep selling nothing. I don't know what SUN has to offer the IT world. Solaris is free, OpenSolaris is even more FREE and the hardware they are putting out is lack...

Where is the SUN buyout?

Posted by: David Vasta

I really thought SUN was going to get purchased by IBM and then come to find out IBM may be laying off 5000 employees? Come on IBM, you know you didn't have to do that? Seems like the past 20 years of IT have been very up and down. I wish it would level out for just a bit.

It's not going to be easy to get throught this hard economic time. Sadly SUN was not in a position I think to survive it anyway. They have been on the bubble for years. I wish all the empoyees who got thier walking papers good luck, there are jobs out there you just have to be creative.

I try to stay up to speed on all things IBM i, even if they confuse me from time to time. Server consolidation has never confused me and it should be on your list of things to do, or at least think about in the next 12 months. IBM is pushing it hard and it just makes sense. I am going to link you...

I have to bring the community together under...
