What's the Future of Linux and Solaris at Oracle?

,----[ Quote ]
| Several of the concerns about Oracle's 
| acquisition of Sun have revolved around how 
| Unix technologies led by Sun would continue 
| under the new ownership. As it turns out, 
| Solaris users might not have much to worry 
| about, as Oracle executives on Wednesday 
| affirmed their commitment to preserving the 
| efforts.


Oracle tag teams Solaris and Linux

| If you want to know what Oracle's roadmap 
| is for Linux, just watch what Red Hat does. 
| Oracle Enterprise Linux is just a clone of 
| RHEL. Getting a sense of what Oracle really 
| has planned for Solaris - aside from 
| deploying it in SMP systems and clusters - 
| is going to take some time. Oracle's plans 
| for virtualization and system management 
| are more clear.


Sun-Oracle strategy update event: my perception

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux was referenced a lot. Larry is a 
| Linux fan, and so are his colleagues -- 
| there's no doubt. ZFS was referenced a lot 
| as one of the most powerful filesystems (it 
| can do snapshots), I really hope that Linux 
| fans will be able to truly enjoy ZFS on 
| Linux kernel level because as of now it 
| works so slowly via Fuse (Filesystem in 
| Userspace).



EU Commission Approves Oracle-Sun Deal With No Conditions

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm very grateful, personally, that the EU
| Commission cares about Open Source, but after
| its extensive investigation into MySQL,
| despite some misinformation, as I viewed it,
| it found, "The Commission's in-depth
| investigation showed that although MySQL and
| Oracle compete in certain parts of the
| database market, they are not close
| competitors in others, such as the high-end
| segment." That is true.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
