[News] IBM Could Boost GNU/Linux by Overshadowing SUN

Hash: SHA1

The Sun Sets

,----[ Quote ]
| Sun’s share in the EDA space has been steadily declining since the hey days 
| of the 80’s. It appears that Linux is the eventual winner for EDA operating 
| systems. I wish IBM well in their pursuit of Sun.

eWEEK Labs on IBM/Sun: Open-Source Community Would Win

,----[ Quote ]
| There is a lot of overlap for IBM and Sun in the areas of open source and
| operating systems, and in this case, that's a good thing. Solaris would give
| IBM a better Unix operating system than IBM's AIX, and the deal could enable
| IBM to take advantage of the significant open-source work that Sun has done.
| The combination of IBM and such open-source technologies as OpenSolaris,
| StarOffice and MySQL could mean a richer, happier open-source community.

IBM Sun acquisition: Good for Unix and Linux. Bad for HP

,----[ Quote ]
| IBM is reportedly in talks to acquire Sun for a whopping $6.5 billion. At
| this early stage, its not known whether this is a fact or just a rumor.
|
| But just for the sake of argument, let's consider what a powerhouse IBM Sun
| would be. In my opinion, it would be a boon to both the Unix and Linux
| markets.
