    Great overview. I wonder if Google’s announcement of Java support on their appengine platform had any last-minute effect on the purchase price?

    What’s this appengine platform of which you speak of, Nate? Is this one of those “just for programmers” type deals? Or is there some way this impacts more than just programmers?

    And I know it sounds pretty bad to say “just programmers,” but that’s not how I meant it.

    Surprisingly, this is the first I’ve heard of such a deal going on. I ‘own’ both as I see them both as economically intelligent companies, but the amount gained was very low as the amount I have in Sun is 10% of what I have in Oracle. Outside of a stock market (even a psuedo-stock market), is, how will this effect the tech world?

    Sun also owns Solaris, and is a sponsor of OpenOffice. Oracle has their databases, and this is not their first takeover. Thing is, I just don’t see what Oracle can do with the products and services that Sun delivers…
