It's curious how people seem to be surprised that Oracle's purchase of Sun
has not prevented Oracle from continuing to act like Oracle.  For the
purposes of the Sun community at large, IBM would've been a much better
host body for the ghost of Sun Microsystems.

Now you get the worst of both worlds: Oracle customer relations and Sun
product service.  If they could somehow outsource future Solaris
development to Computer Associates, it'd be a trifecta.
