IBM's x86 Server Business Back On the Market 71

itwbennett writes "It was widely reported last year (including on Slashdot) that IBM attempted to sell off its x86 server business to Lenovo, which seemed logical as Lenovo had bought out the IBM's PC business a decade ago. However, the two firms could not come to financial terms and the deal was never struck. Well, the rumors have started up again, only this time Lenovo has some competition, as Dell and Fujitsu are now being thrown into the mix as possible suitors."

    off of a PC business that IBM was not able to. Is it because USian workers are all lazy? You know what we really need to do is to give China the cream of the USAian elite managers. I think we should export all the Harvard school of management graduates along with all our intellectual property lawyers to China. Think of all the exponential improvements the Chinese economy would undergo. Sure the Chinese are great at making things, but they have no management skills. We need to help these poor Chinese out. The USA may suck at most things but we have the best management in the world (just ask them). How much better would China be if it had Carley Fiorina in charge of something. It would be a real boom to the elite managers also. No longer would they have to deal with all the fat lazy USian workers. Unfortunately the workers will be directionless, and would not know how and where to go for the next meeting. So be it. That is the price of globalization.
