Biggest news today in ICT domain – Oracle buys Sun

No doubt today’s biggest news was Oracle’s decision to buy Sun microsystems.

Oracle. Yes. The mammoth that purchased Bea and huge amount of other competitors.

Oracle. Company that is known for their lock ins.

Oracle. Antithesis for Sun’s open source offering and strategy.

Oracle. Company known for hard sales tactics.

Oracle. Undoubtedly a java giant in business applications.

Looking forward what happens to my favorite Sun applications like Glassfish application server, which can be in a tight squeeze within Oracle’s portfolio. Personally I would like to see Glassfish to survive, as it has been improving tremendously in every release.

Too early to say whether this was a sad day or whether this will mean good things for Java and Sun.
