Nah, they're spending their money on laptops for Jean Paulo and an actress and 
telling us we're not cool enough for a Mac.

I agree with you Steve.  Oracle is one of the biggest funders and participants 
in the Xen open source project, and many others...   I have a good friend that 
works there now, in the Oracle VM group, and he is constantly telling me how 
much they love open-source...

I think this is a very interesting buy.  However, I wish Microsoft would have 
bought them and just shut them down.  I wish Gates would have spent his money 
(billions) on just buying up all the competition...  lol...  A billion here, 5 
billion there...  I'm a PC.   LOL!

You can kiss MySQL goodbye too.  IBM might try to take over OpenOffice if 
possible.

This is so terrible in so many ways. I proclaim Java to be on its deathbed. 
Openoffice will die a slow death also. My Sun severs are weeping.
