The dot in dot gone

By now the rumor about Sun supposedly being in discussions to go private must have been picked up by every mag and site. The denial from Sun has been strong.

That such a rumor would even be taken seriously shows how weak the tech sector has become. Yesterday's Wall Street darling, Sun, finds itself having to deny that it is going private!

Unlike Seagate and Sungard Data Systems, Sun's business doesn't fit into a form that can be fixed by a stingy private equity firm. Sun is better off merging with one of the Japanese majors like Fujitsu, Hitachi or even NEC.

Sun may have to tear itself into a few pieces to get things right. And, find some way to make money from its java platform!
