When they bought Sun, the firm had a pile of cash and assets but had
been losing money every year.
Oracle swore they would make 3+ billion in profits off Sun in the first
year. The press guffawed. Oracle did it. However we scorn their
policies, it seems to be working.
Lastly: Oracle only paid 7.5 billion for Sun. They probably paid for
the entire deal in the first two years. Even if they lost 90% of Sun's
customers afterwards, they still come out way ahead on cost-of-capital.
