Not too surprised as a lot of companies are switching to Linux for their severs. AIX and IBM's Power series are very fine OS and systems, but are kind of expensive. On the other hand, Linux is cheaper and can even run on a cheap PC. However, once it falls into IBM, I can imagine the annual maintenance and licensing fee would be a lot more than it is now.

I wonder whether the same will happen to Oracle's Java ?
