I still want to see Apple buy nintendo. The wii joins the appletv, iPhone and ds combine. Nintendo game downloads on iTunes.

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.
