Subject Re: OT: Oracle buys Sun
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2009 16:09:42 GMT
Oracle is a bigger competitor for IBM, has a more aggressive strategy and
much less committed to open source,for example they have promised to open
source Oracle ADF RC for nearly two years, (Apache RCF) but you can't see
any progress.
now Oracle will have the most complete software stack even more complete
than Microsoft!
although MySQL was very popular but it was not a direct competitor of DB2
(But Oracle is)
and Solaris and AIX had their own customers, Sparc and Power platform had
their own market share two,
but now with popularity of Oracle DB, Oracle can boost Sparc and Solaris
sale, and get more market share from IBM.
in software market because of Strong position of Oracle, they may need less
commitment to open source and open standards.
