Is IBM buying Sun a good move or bad?

There are rumors about IBM perhaps negotiating to buy Sun Microsystems. They are nothing more than rumors at this point yet one cannot help but ponder if this is in fact a good move for IBM. Java, ODF, *nix based operating systems galore are all commonalities. On the other hand, what revenue stream does Sun have? How much redundancy is there? Who will now keep Java from forking?

What do you think?
