IBM (IBM) may be making a play for Sun (JAVA), but Microsoft (MSFT) CEO Steve Ballmer isn’t worried.

“Someone must think [an IBM-Sun deal] it’s a good idea for the rumour to even exist, I don’t exactly get it,” Steve told a media conference in New York this morning.

“You pick up a lot of stuff when you buy Sun,” Steve continued. “[A deal] gives [IBM] a year or two where all they’re doing is digesting it. I relish that year.”
