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.
