+ Watch JAVA.DL
on My Watchlist
The Company provides network computing infrastructure solutions that include Computer Systems, Data Management, Support Services and Client Solutions and Educational Services.
Sun has good products (Java, Solaris, hardware, we'll see about JavaFX), but they're not really in a position to really benefit from them in part because none of them really dominate the competition. Their move to open source the Java and Solaris shows that they're getting a bit desperate.I think that the coming slump is likely going to hit them harder than most.
Open-sourcing a product isn't always a sign of desperation, but I think it was pretty clear that Sun didn't want to do it for a long time. They'd have gotten a lot more out of it if they'd have done it earlier and a bit less reluctantly.The hardware and software reinforce each other here, so neither is worth as much without the other.As you said, time (and IBM) will tell.
