Wow, it only took like 15 emails on the subject, but finally the voice of 
reason has made itself known.

Ken, I completely agree. Now is the time to pressure them into actually not 
abandoning it.

Take care,
Sina

If this is true then it's not time to tell people to stay away.  It's time 
to get people to get active and start emailing and
calling them till they do support it.  If we stay away we lose what 
accessibility was there.

Hi,
I would not doubt it for one second. They dropped the ball on Linux 
accessibility pretty much first thing when they took over Sun.
It's probably a good idea, if you have influence over software decisions, to 
encourage companies, clients, and friends to stay far
far away from Oracle and their software. I was even going to get rid of Open 
Office but fortunately the version used in Ubuntu is a
fork so not subject to them. unless, that is, they somehow manage to win 
their evil attack on Google. If that happens, who knows who
they will attack next. Keep your fingers crossed, and maybe the open source 
community will keep the Bridge going, Orca is still
alive and well after all.
