    IBM and Red Hat aim to eclipse Solaris

    http://www.vnunet.com/2135333

    IBM really is coming out of the open source camp with all guns
    blazing. After yesterday's Java announcement it's now teaming up with
    Red Hat in a bid to take out Solaris and replace it with Linux.

    Big Blue is delicately quiet about whether this also means taking out
    its own AIX Unix version.

    But the fight could be tougher than it thinks. Solaris is already well
    on its way towards going open source too.

    And while IBM is flavour of the month in the free software community
    that may not last. There's a lot of dedicated Solaris users out there
    who won't be keen to make the switch to the Big Blue side.
    Which after reading this thread makes me wonder just what, exactly, is going on with the 'big' boys

    Then I find THIS :
    Sun and Microsoft bury the hatchet

    Sun Microsystems and Microsoft have suspended years of bitter rivalry to release specifications for the delivery of single sign-on between systems that use the WS-* and Liberty Alliance standards for web services.
    Then more from RedHat :
    Dell founder dons Red Hat

    Billionaire Michael Dell, founder of the world's largest computer manufacturer, and a stalwart of the Windows/Intel alliance, has made a $99.5m investment in Linux vendor Red Hat.
    Who's sleeping with who .........
    You couldn't make this up
