On January 26th just prior to the official announcement of Oracle’s takeover of SUN Microsystems, I confidently predicted in my article 'SUN’s Oracle Merger' with regards to SUN’s storage portfolio that “One certainty is that the OEM partnership with HDS’ enterprise arrays will continue.” Perhaps it’s time to eat some humble pie.

Will Sun continue to shine?

Global server revenue fell 17.3 percent in the third quarter, but sales were up sequentially for the first time since the fourth quarter of 2008, according to IDC data.

Did Stallman fisk himself?
