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.

Steal it?

"scheme centering on the repeated theft of massive amounts of Oracle's software."

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.

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...
