The worst of 2010: Oracle buys Sun
|At the time, Oracle's acquisition of Sun seemed hugely important, but now? No one really
cares. You can still buy a Sun Ray thin client, and Oracle still carries a line of Sun SPARC
servers. The company is investing in Java technology and announced a roadmap in September with two
planned annual releases for what it calls the OpenJDK over the next several years. It looks like Sun is on track to be just
as important to Oracle as JD Edwards and PeopleSoft.
