It is my recollection that Sun, for the most part, acquired tape storage technology from STK(as opposed to disk or other media). The acquisition per se was okay, but the price seemed very excessive, even at the time. Re the WSJ leaking the talks, was the source someone at Sun or someone at IBM ... I have no idea. If Sun leaked, presumably to spark competing bids, it blew up in Sun's face. Very stupid! If IBM leaked, it was worse, as the leakage damaged another company (Sun). Maybe we'll learn at some point.
