|I can't help recalling that a few years back, Apple was on the skids and Sun tried to buy it. That deal fell through. Apple shareholders did pretty well. |
It was probably in the best interests of industry, apple shareholders and this country that the deal fell through. McNealy and ponytail would have destroyed the apple brand along with "Sun". What an arrogant bunch at Sun determined to run it in to ground.
I hope there is white knight lurking in the background. If not and if IBM walks away completely, next 12 months would mark an end of Sun era.
