    i think ms will take over sun while mr. gate's influence in the silicon valley will quietly continue to grow

    i wonder if it is still wise for apple to work hand in hand with microsoft for the next few years, or is it a perfect chance for apple to make a stand?

    Sun is a hardware company. In the last few years they have gotten more and more into software. They have propritary hardware and propritary OS and propritary software. If MS wanted to buy Sun, it would be only to take them out of the running. Sun and MS only compeet on the low to mid range server market. Im sure MS would like to have more IIS and Windows 2003 Server OS's running out there but they dont play in the Enterprise Markets that Sun and IBM play in.

    MS was not an option for the project I am currently working on.
