Hi,

IBM withdraws $7 Billion offer for Sun Microsystems.... It's good as well as bad. Good for Java professionals and bad for Sun.

Just thinking, who is going to buy Sun Microsystems?

I guess we could start up a collection. Put me down for $1

Woah! I totally derailed this discussion. Let's do this: Humorous suggestions in this thread, serious suggestions in the original.

I heard Sun submitted themselves to Apple for approval on the App Store. Guess we'll wait and see if they get approved. Wonder if they have a "Lite" version of themselves to try before you buy?

I really wonder, even though there is a "Lite" version, so far our collection is just $52.99 Will it be sufficient to buy?
