Where Life Takes Me Next...

| You've probably seen the news - the 
| Sun/Oracle transaction has closed. With the 
| passing of that milestone, I can once again 
| speak freely.
| Having had nine months to accelerate down 
| the runway, there's not a doubt in my mind 
| Oracle's takeoff and ascent will be fast 
| and dramatic. I wish the combined entity 
| the best of luck, and have enormous 
| confidence in the opportunity.
