I agree that Sun should have gotten more than $9.50 a share. However, Sun's dealings with IBM ruined Sun's chances to get a better deal, by massively disenchanting Sun's customers. The dealings with IBM was a disaster from start to finish. Well aware of the damage the IBM dealings had done to Sun, Oracle quickly scooped up Sun for IBM's lowest offer plus 10 cents. Great deal for Oracle. I have long since abandoned hope of a higher offer and have sold 3/4 my Sun to make other purchases. The rest I will likely hold until the takeover happens at $9.50 a share. Not the outcome I would have liked.

Best, Mark
