The disruptor of disruptors, Oracle boss Larry Ellison, will be 67 on August 17 this year. So when will he retire? He will be 70 on August 17, 2014. We hear that the R-word is being mentioned by him to close friends, but we hear this from someone, who knows someone, who knows …. so it's veracity is as certain as Sarah Palin …
"We hear that the R-word is being mentioned by him ... so it's veracity is as certain as Sarah Palin running for president."
For the love of all humanity, Larry must not be allowed to retire at any cost.
Did you see that trimaran? Go Larry go!
Oh, does he do computer stuff?
Well, sometimes I think a successor should have a slightly different perspective... how about GNU/FSF's Richard Stallman taking on the job???? :-) wouldn't it be fun to see Oracle's DB (and other software) open sourced under GPL and watch every corporation in the world which uses them have to open source code for their internal & external apps... ;-)
I'm not really an "open-sourcer" and nor do I have particularly strong capitalist leanings... but it would be fun to watch, right? :)
IMHO, Oracle is Larry and Larry is Oracle.
Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
They should follow the Pharoahs lead and ensure that Hurd is buried with him when he goes.
Preferably still alive.
I thought he was dead already
Given his health issues it's only a matter of time.
interesting url I found on the web.....and what does HP really think about Oracle?
