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!DB Douglas A. Brown CEO and Founder Microsoft MVP, Windows Server Citrix Technology Professional DABCC, Inc.
