Wow, didn't see this coming. No kidding. Guess I should learn who Sam Palmisano is. And I wanna know if I can get a cheap ThinkPad.
Some coverage from around the horn:
- The NY Times take on this move as part of the IBM vs. Microsoft battles past/present/future.
- The always-well-informed Slashdot zealots weigh in. They ask the important questions, like "Will Rose become open source this week?"
- And the Yahoo message boards are entertaining, especially if you like cynical and bitter comments.
- Even f*ckedcompany has an interesting link.
- Some speculation about a Microsoft counter-offer. Rumors get started, then all sorts of various people cover it.
