Oracle now owns Java & Solaris

Though most importantly at least for our organization, they also now own
MySQL. I'm curious what they'll do with it.

Re: Oracle now owns Java & Solaris

I wonder if the "IBM buying Novell" rumor engine will kick in again?


How would folks here feel about IBM buying Novell ?

Did the rumour ever die? 🙂

I'm not sure how I'd feel about it. I'll wait until it happens before I
begin worrying about it, though. 🙂

I foreshadow the death of MySQL. (I got a fifty fifty chance on this one.)

Seriously though, I do see Postgres becoming more popular. I've already
started seeing support for it in some of the web based application out
there. I also guessing that MySQL may eventually have a fork.

Re: Oracle now owns Java & Solaris

IBM buying Novell some concern, some optimism.

Concern relates to whether IBM would maintain support for openSUSE and the open source approach.

Optimism as IBM could boost support for those things, whilst still building their business oriented support.

RedHat and SLED support could improve, indeed RedHat and SLED could merge...



Interesting is whether IBM to move back more into PC marketing, production and supply.

Anecdotal, Lenovo loosing previous solid to IBM/Lenovo business result changes to their on line order and delivery of PCs and parts; Mostly these small and middle sized business, forced to order through local agents with varied pricing where previous was IBM/Lenovo online open pricing.

IBM over decades built up good relationships, considerable ongoing business, reasonable returns, from such as these customers...
