Oracle buys Sun Microsystems

Oracle buys Sun

Oracle buys Sun

It has finally happened. Sun has been taken over. Not by IBM, but by Oracle!

This move implies that Larry Ellison has big plans in his competetive struggle with Microsoft. Because with Sun come a lot of nice bonusses. The operating system of Solaris, SPARC hardware platform, VirtualBox, the Java programming language and the MySQL database just to name a few. And not to forget: OpenOffice.
Oracle can now offer services on every level from hardware to software. From small companies to large multinationals. Maybe in the future we will run an Oracle Operating System and write our documents in Oracle Open Office on our Oracle Desktop Machine…

Time will tell…
