Yes, the ultimate conquest is about to take place, as Sun launches a daring reverse takeover of IBM and completes its journey to rule the industry.

But internally, the Kool-Aid drinkers at Sun will know better — what’s really happening is that IBM is finally waving the white flag of surrender, and Sun is just letting them save face.
