Now you want ORCL to buy Red Hat?
Geez, this is only about the billionth time that someone has predicted the sale of Red Hat. I suppose that when it finally happens, we will remember the most-proximal predictor at that time. Good luck on this one!
The shareholders that actually own Sun Microsystems - as opposed to the people who used to run it and behaved as if they owned it - approved of the $5.6bn takeover of Sun by software powerhouse and server and storage (not)wannabe Oracle. According to a terse statement from Sun - and the last thing Sun will say as an …
Either way Sun is dead, gone, history.
Burroughs, Compaq, DEC, Wang, Honeywell, SGI, DataGeneral, Sequent, Amdahl, etc...
There is only one reason Sun died....the executive team. An embarrassment with the Scott top ten lists to the April fools joke with pony tail boy.
I just feel sorry for the people who tried so hard working for the company. That being said we are moving everything to IBM. We trust IBM. We have had enough of Oracle price increases (47% last year), audits then feeling bullied to pay millions more, and finally the Sun gear is a joke compared to the rest of the industry. Would you buy AMD gear if they were selling Pentium III stuff vs. Xeon?
We are moving to Power first then will move to DB2 as they have Oracle compatibility now.
SAP is making it VERY attractive to dump Oracle and Sun completely.

Don't know what you are doing. JFS2 is pretty much bullet proof provided that you are not running AIX5.1 pre ML6 or AIX 5.2 pre ML3. AIX 5.3 and 6.1 has always worked, at least on the 500+ AIX systems I have had a hand in running since JFS2 came along.
There have been problems, but JFS2 is now pretty stable. Looks like there is a current problem with rolling back snapshots, but otherwise....
Check your ML/TL/SP, if you have not already done so.
