Sun will today announce a new e-commerce and corporate software division, to be staffed by people due to be laid off when AOL's acquisition of Netscape goes through, according to a report in today's USA Today. The announcement will follow AOL's much-anticipated statement of its plans for Netscape, which has been the subject of speculation that it will involve numerous redundancies. Given that Sun will be picking up Netscape's server software after the acquisition -- that's clearly going to be the focus of the new corporate software division -- so a plan to acquire a group of the browser company's staff isn't unreasonable. ®
