Rick Ross analysis the possibility of SUN running out of business or being acquired by some other company. While the possibility of closing is fast eliminated, the author chooses 2 giants which are supposed to be capable of acquiring SUN: IBM and Fujitsu. The analysis is quiet interesting, but I must say that there is no sign of such a movement, and as far as know when talking about large companies I always think that the solution is a jointventure. Another name that is not contained in the analysis is Oracle. I think Oracle can be interesting in keeping Java on its side (even if Oracle might not be interested in SUN hardware). But I let the future decide what we’ll have.
