RE: Oracle buying Sun?



fixed

I would think that the statement: IBM wouldn't buy Sun at any price. would be a giveaway that IBM either found something (or not) in their research of Sun that turned them off to the idea completely. Maybe in the hopes of someone else snapping up Sun, and getting stuck with the issue(s).
It could also be that IBM i marketing was in charge of the negotiations. :-)

Or...is Oracle interested because IBM wanted it first?

I wonder, did IBM blow it or is Oracle left holding the proverbial bag?
