IBM buys SUN

"Sun will bring a very large open source product line to IBM indeed, with the crown jewels in terms of popularity being MySQL and Java. IBM has its own DB2 product line and MySQL would compete with that - although one would think Big Blue's marketeers could separate the two fairly easily. MySQL might be targeted at SQL, for example. Big Blue might also make better revenue-generating use of Java."

Now that Java is open, the only question I would have would be Netbeans vs. Eclipse.
Does it make sense for IBM to have both knowing that the javax.swing.* are part of the core, yes, I would think, knowing that both technologies (SWT, SWING) might converge.
