Oracle will boost MySQL, release Cloud Office suite

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenOffice.org: OpenOffice.org will be 
| managed as an independent business unit, 
| Screven said, with Sun's development and 
| support teams retained. Oracle will 
| continue to support the free community 
| edition of OpenOffice.org. However, Oracle 
| also plans to deliver a cloud offering 
| called Oracle Cloud Office, which Screven 
| said had been under development for a 
| while. Screven did not comment on the fate 
| of StarOffice, the paid, supported version 
| of OpenOffice.org that competes with IBM's 
| own OpenOffice.org-based Lotus Symphony.

| business intelligence and content 
| management offerings.


Ellison to recruit thousands for Sun integration army

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle's chief executive on Wednesday claimed that - far from laying
| off beleaguered Sun employees - his company would be hiring 2,000 
| additional people during the next few months.
| He reprimanded as "irresponsible" the UBS analyst who 
| said last week that Oracle will cut up to half of Sun's 
| 30,000 workforce following the completion of the deal.


Report: Oracle plans to hire more employees than it cuts from Sun 

,----[ Quote ]
| With Oracle's anticipated purchase of Sun drawing near, 
| company CEO Larry Ellison disclosed plans to hire 2,000 
| engineering and sales employees - more workers than it's 
| expected to cut from Sun's workforce, according a The Wall 
| Street Journal report posted Tuesday.



Every good thing has an end

,----[ Quote ]
| I look forward working with  âanother youâ,
| inside the broader Oracle Corporation, and I
| am sure that it will be exciting.  So
| farewell, Sun. Hopefully your employees will
| not forget who you were, what you stood for:
| excellency in technology, freedom, genius,
| and inspiration.
