Oracle buys Sun

Wow… Larry, you are a genius. Now it’s official. And I think it’s a brilliant move of Oracle.

Not only that they suddenly own Java, they now also have their own IDE (Netbeans), a hardware platform (Solaris) for distributing their high power applications and a lot more (even MySQL, LOL). At the weekend I joked about this, now it’s reality. I’m really curious what this will mean for IBM in the future. And I would love to see the face of the IBM manager responsible for the negotiations between IBM and Sun. He’s probably at some cliff right now and looking down… either out of free will or with his hands bound behind him.

Interesting times, really interesting times 🙂
