I may have not been correct

When I said Apple should buy Sun, whether that was a good idea or not, it seems to have failed to occur. Instead, we find that Oracle have done the necessary. Well, there goes my already-outdated SUNW tag. Presumably they’ll keep Java (the licensing revenue is actually pretty good), MySQL (I’ve heard that Oracle make databases), the OS and a subset of the hardware gear. Then they’ll become the all-in-one IT industry in a box vendors that Cisco have yet to organise, with (presumably x86) servers running the Solaris-Glassfish-Oracle-Java app stack in some insanely fast fashion. I wonder how many of the recent leftfield hardware projects they’ll just jettison, and who will end up running the Santa Clara business unit…
