In news that is shocking to exactly no one, Oracle just published its new products roadmap that pushes Solaris 11.next to next year. In all honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it was scraped altogether after the latest layoffs. Who exactly is left... read more

Oracle will be super stupid if it thinks that those people who saw all their peers / managers / coworkers for 10+ years thrown out in that nasty way will actually trust Oracle and stay till the end
Seriously, dreamers, think about the synergies--how many Oracle employees drink a Starbucks or two every day. A perfect marriage!
