PPS. anyone remember Oracle's predictions of MPP killing the SMP ? :-)
I do. That was related to one very nice presentation for a product
called "Oracle Video On Demand" in which
Mr. Ellison ordered a pizza online and an engineer brought it to him. I
believe that the product was for some kind of
futuristic video system in Cambridge, UK. Niall or Jonathan may
actually know more about it. I saw the presentation
on EOUG in Cannes in the early 90-s.
