I may not be able to comment further because of the obvious reasons :)
But having a single vendor for the entire suite certainly helps  (at
least no finger pointing when there is an issue) and I do not see
anything wrong in it.  Also why would you need to depend on somebody
(i.e third party cluster ware) when you want to run your database in a
cluster environment. It does not make any sense to me :). Also when
the focus (!) is on reducing the TCO, eliminating another layer of $$
certainly reduces the co$t.

BTW, at the end of the day they all are arguments. Reality is somewhat
close to the other end. :)). We can take that offline..

Now, why would Oracle stop supporting VERITAS in the future, when it is
and has been one of the most robust and well architected clustering

thing for Oracle now to try and eat other people's lunch or does poor
Larry needs more money to buy a bigger yacht? It will be a real shame if
Oracle succeeds in doing that.

I have few customers (few, really few) customers running 10gR2 RAC on
top of Veritas (that is due to their corporate licencing from Veritas)
and Oracle certainly supports Veritas (at least on current versions).
However this may (!) change in future !
