Major Open Source Contributions:
IBM >> Linux, Eclipse
Sun Micro >> Java, OpenOffice, NetBeans, Virtual Box, xVM, Glassfish, OpenSolaris, ZFS, MySQL
I'm sort of nervous and excited at the same time to thing what could happen to these products... Hands down, Sun Micro is one of the largest contributors to OSS - but has limited development in the past.
The IBM buyout could mean a GPL'ed ZFS and OpenSolaris, a complete xVM, and an improved MySQL.... Then again, it just might mean end of life for some things.... We shall see....
The reason computer chips are so small is computers don't eat much.
