Larry Ellison is raising the temperature of his fight with HP by accusing its new CEO Leo Apotheker of running a spying scheme against Oracle when he was boss of SAP. Oracle and SAP will meet in court on Monday. Ellison said Oracle would subpoena Apotheker, ex-boss of SAP, to appear, if he had the guts to go to HP's headquarters …
And Mr Hurd has to say
Ooh, if only I could think in a sneeky way.
RE: Liesure Suit Larry wont get HP's business
oooh looks like that article touched a nerve with someone. As for HP potentially buying RedHat I doubt Oracle would give a rats ass. Exadata wouldn't be affected by it as Oracle already said they have given up on RedHat and spinning their own distro :
With Solaris 11 on Exadata in the pipeline also I fail to see how that will cut off Exadata's balls as you put it.
BTW your HP Sun FUD link is behind the times in case you didn't notice. A bit like HP really.

"scheme centering on the repeated theft of massive amounts of Oracle's software."
Why did he steal it, you can download it for free from the Oracle OTN download site?!
I've often wondered this
I've often wondered this too - the only thing I can think is that it wasn't just centred around the software itself; I believe the accused also allegedly stole support documentation, knowledgebase articles, etc, which isn't publicly accessible.
Children in the schoolyard
Did not! Did too!
Oracle & HP - Knock it off, you guys!
Stop acting like a bunch of self-centered jerks and act like responsible professionals running $100B businesses...
Oh - I forgot. Never mind.
I love it
It's a hellva alot better than the usual legal crap they fling at each other for patent infringements
fight!, Fight!, fight! fight!
Hypocrisy Larry, that's truly funny...
Talk about a comedian & hypocrisy. Larry is accusing someone else of corporate espionage when Oracle, courtesy of Larry & his band of mermaids are suing Google after how long since buying Sun Microsystems?
If this isn't a form of corporate espionage, the purchase & then sudden litigation, then I'm confused...
