False alarm.
That begun, when there was a wrong story about McNealy leaving Sun.
I would be VERY surprised if that happen.

Now that Sun Microsystems has successfully emerged from the Internet bubble, Caris & Company research analyst Mark Stahlman suspects that chief executive Scott McNealy will soon move on from the company.

Than this happen:

This latest revelation only increases the likelihood of a Google purchase of the hardware giant, something I argued for recently, which was very widely received by the online media and financial community only two weeks ago. It seems highly plausible that McNealy has been liquidating positions in accordance with a privately pre-arranged deal with Google Chairmen Page and Brin, who would need the excess liquidity of the stock in order to execute a successful buy-out of the hardware goliath: only a little over a week ago, he sold $10 million worth of Sun Microsystems stock that he owned personally.

"In a recent visit, an unknown visitor came from a private e-mail inside Sun's server – hence they were an employee of Sun Microsystems – which seems to have been titled "Possibly True"). In short, it now seems Sun employees are speculating that the company are about to be bought out by Google – either that at least, or they know something they are not currently at liberty to reveal."

does this make sense ??

Yea, and if Google acquires Sun then we can hopefully expect a Google OS in the next 5-7 years... because you you know Google likes to make a product then let it leak a little bit and tease us to death... then!BAMM!... surprise the industry with their "so-called" innovative product.

Off Topic: Google should do more interesting things like hacking or gathering information on Area-51 and using their powerful farms and creating an algorithem to search and communicate with alien beings!

Like minds think alike! Sun also contributes their technology to censoring China's internet. A marriage made in Beijing?
