LXer: The rise of the Blue Sun, IBM and Sun

Published at LXer:

The news broke this morning, March 18th, that IBM is talking to Sun about buying the company. Sources from both companies tell me that such a deal is in the works and it may be completed as early as this week. Sunís pricetag may be as high as $6.5-billion with a large part of the deal being made with IBM stock. Sources indicated that what IBM wants is Sunís software businesses, not its x86 and SPARC server lines.
