    ZFS has rendered VxFS/VVM obsolete anyway so on a Solaris front it'll be a moot point in a few months

      They had someone from Veritas on Fox earlier tonight, he was talking about how data storage/security are the 2 software catagories with top sales at the moment. He said something like "we felt that the two of our companies were already at the top, and that 1+1 equaled something much greater than 2".

      The way he described it, it sounded more like a merger than a buy out.
