I.B.M., Looking to Buy Sun, Sets Up a Software Strategy

NY Times: "I.B.M.'s interest in acquiring the server computer maker Sun Microsystems for nearly $7 billion may seem at first to be a reversal of its recent efforts to move away from the hardware business.

But analysts say there is more to Sun than servers, which are used in corporate data centers. They say its strengths in software, systems design and research make it an attractive target."

The story is too old to be commented.
