OpenSolaris: Oracle, where art thou? 

,----[ Quote ]
| After a prolonged wait, Oracle have now 
| completed their takeover of Sun. Late January, 
| they presented their plans for taking Sun's 
| products forward.
| OpenSolaris wasn't even mentioned.If you look 
| carefully, it's on a slide, but that's about 
| it.


OPEN LETTER TO ORACLE: (Open)Solaris Roadmap

,----[ Quote ]
| I look forward to these details which will hopefully put an 
| end to the Solaris FUD and put us back on a path of profitable 
| and productive growth, for the sake of the community, customers, 
| and Oracle itself. 



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

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.
