Submission + - A Theory on IBM's Sun Buyout (

koutbo6 writes: "My theory is that IBM bid for SUN without the intention of buying them out because there is so much overlap in their business. The plan is to make IBM's foes (Cisco and Oracle) pay more for SUN, making them less effective in their competition with IBM after the buyout since they would have less capital resources. My prediction is that Sun get's bought out by Oracle or Cisco for no less than $8 Billion."
