Oracle to buy Sun

Well, I always believed that Sun would be able to survive without being bought by another company.

We have great products, hardware as well as software, and we only have done poorly in making money with the products, or with service contracts for our (open source) software products...

Now it seems I will never figure it out, since Oracle will by Sun.

We have just been informed about this some hours ago, and its in all news now.

Right now, I don't know enough about Oracle to make me a picture whether or not this is (for me) better than IBM buying us. IBM is interested in OpenOffice.org, so probably also in Sun's OOo team here in Hamburg.

What about Oracle?

Sun Java Communications Suite 6 - now with Convergence AJAX client

Jim Parkinson has just blogged about the availability of the new release from the Java Communications Suite.

Our messaging server is already well known for being rock solid and for it's great scalability.

The new release offers interesting new features for mobile messaging (LEMONADE support).

For me, as an end user in this case, the most interesting new feature is the web based mail and calendering client - Convergence.

If you are interested, you can find many more details in Jim's blog.
