Don't sound the bell till the axe has fallen. It may just be head talk 
to get the share price up.

Even if IBM do buy Sun I can see how it's sad and all, losing Sun is 
like losing one of the original Silicon Valley brethren, but 
realistically it was inevitable. I have seen nothing but mist and 
uncertainty in Sun's future for a long time.

There are arguments for the merger:
