SUN wanted to go back to the tables and talk.
Unfortunately, IBM says NO. (Source : http://www.cnbc.com/id/30245898 ).
And there is Chambers (Cisco CEO) who had also highlighted that a deal with SUN is unlikely.
Who else is there that is capable of acquiring SUN. Not many. Maybe Oracle. Unfortunately, the conspiracy theory for Oracle-SUN is so far out that it will take a lot more to spin a decent tale. What would Oracle do with the hardware business?
Where is SUN headed now without IBM? With earnings results just around the corner and a recent layoff during end March…. it seems like a downhill ride for SUN to me.
