It seems like a great time for a group like Sun to be bought by Apple and for the combined pair to have closer ties to Google. Apple has the framework for web apps from Google to merge fairly seamlessly with the desktop system and with Sun involved they'd have a very strong offering for everything server related. What would the/. community think of such a merger?
